CCED program recap

It is reported that the Chemists Celebrate Earth day booth went well.  Corresponding with this year's March for Science, it took place at Columbus Commons on April 22, 10:30 am to 5:30 pm.  During that time, we passed out almost 150 booklets and more than 200 children and adults stopped by our booth during the event.


Mentors Wanted! Help make a difference in a graduate/undergraduate student's life

As part of our Mentorship Program for 2017, we are creating a pool of volunteer mentors from academia, industries, and retirees who would be available through email to a student to answer questions regarding a career path, fields of interest, or networking.  No face-to-face interaction is necessary.  However mentors can meet their students at local section events throughout the year, if they desire to do so.  The time commitment is minimal.  Mentees would be graduate or undergraduate students from the colleges/universities in the Columbus area.
