1 PID Analyzers, LLC, Sandwich, Massachusetts, United States Abstract Body:This presentation will explore how seed funding from an American Chemical Society science cafe mini-grant during the International Year of Chemistry in 2011 has led to more than seventeen Cape Cod Science Cafe events to date. Although the first three events focused on general public adult topics like the chemistry of culinary pairings of food and wine, alternative energy and protecting the waters on Cape Cod, the fourth science cafe was dedicated to 'healthy' kids. Hosted on a Sunday morning in the basement of a local library, the event drew over 150 attendees. We had some attendees drive more than twenty miles to attend! Important connections …

Rochester Local Section Social Media Workshop: Sparkle where you are

The Rochester Local Section of the American Chemical Society had the opportunity to experience a pilot 'Sparkle where you are' highly customized program organized by the ACS Office of Pubic Affairs.We were hosted by Nazareth College, home of most of the Rochester Local Section meetings. I have trained two Sparkle classes at the ACS Headquarters in Washington D.C. in 2011 and 2013 and was chosen for this project because I am the  Technology Subcommittee Chair of the ACS Committee on Public Relations and Communications. My presentation focused on how local sections can leverage Facebook and Linked-In to engage members and the public at their events.

AIHA Fall Conference 2015 according to @pidgirl

We're a long time exhibitor at the American Industrial Hygiene Conference and Exposition. In fact, we got our start in industrial hygiene instrumentation back in 1973. As our marketing program evolves, I've been seeking smaller venues that are more networking and presence based. The New England Local Section of American Industrial Hygiene Association provides this small venue that is vendor friendly at their all-day technical conference (they do this at a handful of local section monthly meetings as well). I'd heard some buzz about the AIHA Fall Conference (AIHAFC),when I was in Salt Lake City at the National meeting earlier this year, that the Fall conference is "a really intimate experience" and that "totally different people attend the Fall conference". I just had to check it out.

I tweeted my friend, @Rosenow, and asked if there were vendor opportunities at the Fall conference in Orlando, FL. Turns out, there were. I signed up to be a "Silver…

3rd Annual Cape Cod Celebrates National Chemistry Week at Wicked Cool Autumn Welcome Science Cafe

The Northeastern Section of the American Chemical Society celebrated National Chemistry Week 2015 in the Boston area at the Museum of Science and the Boston Children’s Museum and in classrooms and at the Boy Scouts on Cape Cod. Volunteers at NESACS Boston events boasted rainbow colored tye-dye shirts by suggestion of the NESACS NCW Coordinator’s 11 year old daughter, Cassie Lopes, and featured numerous color experiments that were accompanied by the acapella group, University of Wisconsin-Madison Early Music Singers, who sang Seventeenth Century songs about chemistry while Cambridge Science Festival’s Science on the Street stole the show at the Cape Cod Science CafĂ© for Scouts with their color-maze following Ozobots and Augmented Reality Sandbox which uses colors to show the changes in elevation in real-time as kids play in the sandbox.  See the C&EN blurb here
