Communicating chemistry to chemists

TITLE: Communicating chemistry to chemists

ABSTRACT BODY:
Abstract: 
The American Chemical Society's (ACS) Division of Small Chemical Businesses (SCHB) began a weekly conference call for members-helping-members during the early days of the global pandemic that has evolved into a weekly virtual Happy Hour that includes professional development, networking, and socializing, and has ingratiated itself as a very important member benefit and a way to regularly connect with other members of the global chemistry enterprise.

TITLE: STEM Journey Speaker Expansion Series-A post-pandemic outreach model

ABSTRACT BODY:
Abstract: 
STEM Journey began in 2014 as a stand-alone day-long K-12 and general public informal science education event that was hosted by Cape Cod Community College. At the height of this program, the largest of its kind in Southeastern Massachusetts, this event would garner nearly 2,000 people annually. The 2020 event was cancelled due to a water main break at the site with COVID-19 closures to commence a week later. Since other smaller public outreach events like Cape Cod Celebrates National Chemistry Week are running with about a third of the attendance in 2021, it seemed reasonable to re-tool STEM Journey, bringing the essence of the program, and taking it on the road to various locations, some still on Cape Cod but also including underrepresented areas, as an in-house assembly. This presentation will focus on the re-tooled version of STEM Journey in 2022.

IUPAC Global Women's Breakfast #GWB2022

 

IUPAC Global Women’s Breakfast

February 16

Empowering Diversity in Science

As part of the annual IUPAC Global Women’s Breakfast initiative, and in collaboration with the Northeastern Section of the American Chemical Society, we are hosting an online panel discussion on Feb 16th, starting at 8am. Our panel features three incredible chemists who will talk about their experiences as leaders in the field. Join us to hear from Dr. Katherine Lee, Head of Scientific Planning and Operations at Pfizer, Dr. Jennifer Maclachlan, Managing Director at PID Analyzers and Dr. Leila Deravi, Assistant Professor at Northeastern University. I wanted to ask if you could share this event within your network.

 

This event is part of a series of webinars and discussions that we have held over the past 12 months, that have included workshops on imposter syndrome; implicit bias; and a panel discussion focused on women-entrepreneurs. Registrations are free and can be made at https://bit.ly/NESACS_GWB2022. I also cannot stress enough that all are welcome to attend!

CO2 Emissions in Indoor Air and Potential Solutions for Reduction


 Pittcon 2022 | March 5 - 9, 2022

Georgia World Congress Center
Atlanta, Georgia, USA



CO2 Emissions in Indoor Air and Potential Solutions for Reduction

  • Room: B316
  •  
  • Session Number: G09-07
Tuesday, March 08, 2022: 3:45 PM - 4:05 PM
Author(s) Dr. Jack Driscoll and Jennifer L. Maclachlan


Description

In a recent NIH study, associations of higher indoor carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations with impaired work performance, increased health symptoms, and poorer perceived air quality have been attributed to correlation of indoor CO2. At levels above 600 ppm CO2, testing was done at 1000 ppm CO2 and they found that moderate and statistically significant decrements occurred in six of nine scales of decision-making performance. To keep the level of CO2 below 600 ppm a new CO2 controller has been developed by PID Analyzers that would automatically work with the HVAC system to increase additional intake air to reduce the CO2. An additional CO2 analyzer would analyze the intake air to ensure that the CO2 level was low. If the intake air was too high then a room CO2 scrubber (using a carbon or molecular sieve or metal oxide cartridge) could be used to reduce the CO2 to an acceptable level. This would lead to improved productivity of the workforce.

Chemists and the Public: The Role of Informal Science Education (#89)

 




Chemists and the Public: The Role of Informal Science Education (#89)

Organizers: Maclachlan, Jennifer, Burks, Raychelle, Hayashi, Kazuhiro, MacLennan, Matthew S

This will be an important forum for science communicators to network and share their informal SCICOMM how-to's with one another as well as inspire those members of the chemistry enterprise to get started at sharing their passion for science education, in an exemplary way. Seeking to increase the impacts of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) beyond the Academy, scientists and institutions engage in a variety of activities including: public outreach, science communication, engagement through social media, informal science education (ISE), and strategic knowledge mobilization (KM) activities across a range of settings and audiences. In addition to administrative "tried and true" and/or novel engagement methods, scientists also work to assess the broader impacts of their activities and must navigate their institution's review board processes. This session will feature a diverse set of speakers to discuss the latest research, best communication practices, recurring challenges, and common institutional / agency processes, and assessment tools.
