2012 Chemluminary Award for Outstanding On-Going National Chemistry Week Event

Cleveland Local Section

For the 24th year in a row, the Cleveland Section continues to organize their National Chemistry Week event which is an engaging hands-on program that puts chemistry in the context of a water park visit by Milli and Avogadro, the principal characters in the annual storylines.

Volunteers needed!
So how did you decide to become a scientist?  When you were a child did a particular someone say or do something that made you think about a technical career?  How would you like to have the same impact on a child?

One possible way is by giving of your time and expertise.  Our Cleveland Section is looking for people who’d be interested in working with area children through our National Chemistry Week program.  Each year we celebrate NCW in October by staging hands-on chemistry demonstrations for children in grades 2-6.  If you can spare a few hours between now and October to help design this year’s program, please drop Bob Fowler a line at  You decide how much time and for how long.

Then reward yourself by watching the little eyes light up when you help a child learn about the fascination of science!

We're also looking for new volunteers to join with one of our experienced demonstrators as they present our program to 2nd-5th grade students during NCW next month.  Click here to see a list of county library branches where we present.  Please let Bob Fowler know if anyone in your organization might be interested.

Planning committee meetings are held a couple times a month throughout the spring. See the volunteers page for dates, times and locations.
