The Western Michigan ACS section celebrates National Chemistry Week each year by engaging the next generation of scientists in interactive chemistry demonstrations. This year, a number of local industries and universities participated to bring "Chemistry Rocks" to the local community at the Woodland Mall on October 21, 2017.
A local TV station covered the event in 2015: WZZM Coverage of Chemistry @ The Mall
K-12 students will have the opportunity to create illustrated poems for "Chemistry Rocks" that will be judged at the event. Winners will receive a gift card and advancement to the national competition. Winners from the local section may be seen below, including past years' winners.
