2015 Science Carnival at the Cambridge Science Festival

NESACS participated in the Science Carnival and Robot Zoo at the 2015 Cambridge Science Festival for the fourth consecutive year as a result of a continued relationship from an ACS/NSF grant for an event at the 2012 Cambridge Science Festival to carry on the mission of the International Year of Chemistry. I booked two tables: one for resources which included Chemistry Ambassador sashes, Celebrating Chemistry National Chemistry Week and Chemists Celebrate Earth Day handouts and printouts of ACS Resources for Educators including parents who home school grades K-12.

Our NSYCC younger chemists Jackie O’Neil and Primrose Nimnark and NESACS PR Committee members, Cosmo Sabatino and Jennifer Maclachlan staffed the ‘ACS’ tables for the duration of the event.
