    ACS Kids Zone - Earth Day 2021 Virtual Event!

    Virtual ACS Kids Zone - Earth Day 2021

    Thursday, April 22, 1–2 PM Eastern US

    Participate in Chemists Celebrate Earth Week and Earth Day 2021 by joining chemists across the world for a virtual #ACSKidsZone event. Conduct hands-on activities with popular STEM advocates around the educational theme, "Reducing Our Footprint with Macromolecular Chemistry."

    Our environmental footprint is the impact we have on the Earth, and it includes the energy, food, water, and materials we use or leave behind. To help protect the Earth for future generations to come, we can all take steps to reduce our footprint—and chemistry is a part of the solution! Chemists use their learning of the properties of molecules, the building blocks of chemical compounds, to help understand, solve, and, prevent environmental problems. In this interactive #ACSKidsZone event taking place on Earth Day (April 22), explore environmental solutions with very big molecules!

    Required registration is available here. Once you register, share the event with your communities on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook with the above image and the hashtag #ACSKidsZone!

    Activities, a shopping list, and more information coming soon.
