Celebrate National Chemistry Week 2019 with Marvelous Metals Resources from the Journal of Chemical Education

National Chemistry Week, a community-based annual event uniting ACS local sections, businesses, schools, and individuals in highlighting the value of chemistry in our everyday life, is being celebrated October 20–26, 2019 with the theme “Marvelous Metals.” As part of the celebration, the Journal of Chemical Education is highlighting hands-on activities for exploring metals and their uses, as well as experiments for understanding metals and their properties. Metals and metal-related topics can be used to motivate students, illustrate important chemical concepts, and communicate the importance of chemistry. Make the most of this yearly event by connecting the classroom experience to students’ everyday lives through resources from the Journal of Chemical Education.
