    A consortium of Illinois Sections of the American Chemical Society is hosting a booth at the Illinois State Fair.   We are presenting a variety of exciting chemistry demonstrations and hands-on activities suitable for young students, as well as an interactive simple chemistry quiz.  Literature is available on environmental issues, lists of educational resources, and ACS activities for students, science teachers, and the general public.  Packets of information, including resource CDs, are offered to teachers visiting our booth.

    Please join us in Springfield for a few hours or a day.  It is great fun, and promotes a love of chemistry and science to young people of all ages.  More info and to sign up to help.

    Where is our tent?  Here's a map of Springfield, a map and directions page, an interactive map (we are closest to Gate 7 off Taintor Road on the north boundary of the Fairgrounds), and a map to help you find our tent.  Conservation World is in the north-west corner of the Fairgrounds.  Local weather at the Fairgrounds.
