National Chemistry Week 2020: Resources on Glues and Adhesives from the Journal of Chemical Education

National Chemistry Week, a community-based annual event uniting ACS local sections, businesses, schools, and individuals in communicating and promoting the value of chemistry in our everyday life, is being celebrated October 18–24, 2020 with the theme “Sticking with Chemistry”, featuring the chemistry of glues and adhesives. Topics such as making glue, investigating properties of glue, and exploring applications of adhesives can be used to motivate students, illustrate important chemical concepts, and communicate the importance of chemistry. Make the most of this annual celebration by connecting chemistry to students’ everyday lives through resources from the Journal of Chemical Education.
