(1) Outstanding Performance by a Local Section (small-medium size)
(2) Best National Chemistry Week Event Organized by a Student Group
(3) Outstanding Public Outreach Event Organized by a Student Group.
Greetings KLS Members!
February may be the shortest month in the calendar, but there's double the opportunity for you to meet and mingle with other chemistry enthusiasts this month!
For our regularly scheduled meeting, we'll be hearing from Dr. Bikram Subedi, professor at Murray State University. Dr. Subedi specializes in the development of analytical methods to analyze chemical contaminants in water and will discuss the application of these methods toward quantifying illicit drug use within communities.
The following week, on Tuesday February 27, an ACS "program-in-a-box" event Opiods: Fighting Addiction With Chemistry will take place. This topic is incredibly timely, and the program promises to be engaging and informative. Dr. Rebecca Brown will be hosting at WKTCC in Paducah, KY, and Drs. Abigail Shelton and Robbie Montgomery will be hosting at UTM in Martin, TN. If you would like to attend, please contact one of them for more details.
~ Dr. Genessa Smith, Chair
Let your children (ages 0 - 14) enjoy supervised Science Centers while you listen to the KLS meeting speaker.
Your children will get to eat dinner with you, and then participate in age-appropriate science activities nearby. There is no cost to attend the science center activities.
