    ILLINOIS STATE FAIR ACS CHEMISTRY TENT

    AUGUST 11 – AUGUST 19

     VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

    The Chicago Section of the American Chemical Society, jointly with other Illinois Sections of the ACS will again have a Chemistry Tent in Conservation World at the Illinois State Fair in Springfield.

    We share with the public the excitement of chemistry by way of demos, hands-on activities, literature and give-aways. A couple of years ago we had over 20,000 people come through our tent.

    We need your help to make this program a continued success!!!

    We are looking for volunteers to help us at this year’s Fair. This is a very rewarding activity and a chance to meet new colleagues from other Sections while reaching out to the public. We need demonstrators, individuals willing to help with hands-on activities and individuals who are a “jack of all trades”. Come for a shift or for the day or participate for several days. We provide free parking and admission to the Fair for our volunteers. There are nearby reasonably priced hotels, motels & campgrounds for accommodations during the Fair.
