Happy Chemists Celebrate Earth Week Milwaukee Section!
Chemists Celebrate Earth Week will be celebrated April 17-23, 2022 with the theme, “The Buzz About Bugs: Insect Chemistry.” The Journal of Chemical Education has organized a collection of resources for bringing ideas to students on chemistry, insects, and the natural world. By exploring our collection of articles and experiments, students can examine the properties of insects, explore insects and scent, experiment with natural products, and investigate insecticides and insect repellents. Explore chemistry at play in the world of insects today!
In addition, there are many fun, interactive and informative resources on the ACS CCEW website: ACS CCEW Resources
If you are looking for some ideas to plug into Earth Week activities locally, then here are some suggestions to connect with local organizations! When you attend an event, please consider posting a note to social media with #CCEW or #ACSMilwaukee. Happy Earth Week!
