Everyone's hard work and dedication helped us to bring home three ChemLuminaries this year!
(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 all. I’m pleased to say this year has been a successful one for the KLS, culminating with being nominated for four Chemluminary awards. Out of those four nominations, we earned three this past month at the ACS national meeting in Washington D.C. One of the amazing things our section does is hold meetings each month during the academic year where current chemical research is presented. This month [September] is no exception. Please join us -- we’ll be treated to a presentation from John Hershberger of Arkansas State regarding the development of a cross-coupling and Biginelli reaction sequence leading to new bioactive derivatives. Students interested in graduate school are especially encouraged to attend!

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.
