Dive Into Marine Chemistry with Chemists Celebrate Earth Week

The American Chemical Society has a proud tradition of celebrating Earth Week — and helping chemists everywhere get in on the fun and share the power of chemistry with others. The annual Chemists Celebrate Earth Week celebration encourages ACS members and science enthusiasts to build awareness of chemistry at the local level. ACS local sections, schools, businesses, and individuals are invited to organize or participate in events in their communities with a common goal: communicate the positive role that chemistry plays in the world.

CCEW celebrates its 15th anniversary in 2018 with the theme “Dive into Marine Chemistry.”  Check out the CCEW 2018 edition of Celebrating Chemistry and other online resources listed below.
