Welcome to the Sweet Side of Chemistry!!! This year’s National Chemistry Week (NCW) theme showcases the chemistry involved in candy and confections. Come and enjoy the demonstrations by students from various institutions. Please thank Dr. S.K. Airee, NCW Coordinator, for making this event so popular not only with local schools, but also getting Proclamations from the Mayors and the Tennessee State Governor. Preceding the show we will have dinner along with our monthly meeting in the conference room adjacent to Skyhawk Café. Most importantly, on the agenda this month is the slate for election of officers and nominations for outstanding teachers and students for awards this year. Please consider serving our local section and come out for the meeting in November to vote and celebrate the award winners.
