International Activities Committee Chair, Dr. Jens Breffke, as he discusses the history of the Periodic Table, the interdisciplinary use of the Periodic Table of the Elements in the sciences and how scientists around the world have celebrated this 150-year-old discovery by Dmitry Mendeleev during 2019, the International Year of the Periodic Table. There will be two seatings for the lecture portion of the event: 1pm and 2pm. You must RSVP using the Eventbrite to reserve a spot for either of the identical lectures as seating at this event is limited. 

This is the second time the Sandwich Public Library has hosted the award-winning Cape Cod Science Cafe for families. The first time was in 2011 during the International Year of
Chemistry which featured hands-on activities related to healthy kids. This time around we are adding the Periodic Table Talk lecture for older learners so we can offer something for every science enthusiast. Hands-on Periodic Table themed activities will be led by three local sections of the American Chemical Society: The Northeastern Local Section (of which Cape Cod is part of), the Lehigh Valley (Pennsylvania) and the Rhode Island Local Section. PID Analyzers, LLC, Palladium Science Academy, Scientists are Superheros, too, Cape Cod Learning Tours, Smithers Viscient, LLC. PiRShared, and Marine Educators, Eben Franks will be leading hands-on activities related to the Periodic Table of the Elements.




The Cape Cod Science Cafe is a cooperative effort between Sandwich-based business, PID Analyzers, LLC and the Northeastern Section of the American Chemical Society to create a social and educational forum where scientists and the general public, including students, can meet in a relaxed atmosphere and fuel their passion for science and STEM-related fields.

What to expect If you plan to attend the event: Please RSVP if you want to attend the lecture as seating is very limited.

And ACTION: AIHA announces their Young Worker Health & Safety Policymaker Meeting Request Campaign

Every minute, a young worker is injured on the job, and every day, a young worker loses their life as a result of an incident at work. By working with policymakers we can help protect young workers. One of the first steps on the road to protecting workers is meeting with policymakers, which is also one of the most effective forms of advocacy.



The American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) has launched an action alert titled Young Worker Health and Safety Policymaker Meeting Request with a pre-written letter to your LOCAL policymakers. All you have to do in click on the link below, fill in your name and address and click on START WRITING, which opens up a letter to your policymakers (you can select the letter as is or customize it if you wish), then click SEND.

The letter requests a meeting. The AIHA Teen Workplace Health and Safety Task Force can assist you with the next steps in this advocacy process by providing preparatory materials for your meeting/visit. Contact us to learn more. If meeting with legislators is out of your comfort zone, please send the action alert anyway and pass on the lead to the AIHA Teen Workplace Health and Safety Task Force and we'll follow through with it either by identifying someone local who is willing to take the meeting or scheduling a telecon if we need to complete the meeting remotely. 

Advocate for the education of young workers so that they are able to identify and correct workplace hazards and teach them to expect a safe and healthy workplace. Take action now.
