NATIONAL CHEMISTRY WEEK IS COMING!

-- Contributed by James Harrington

NCW

Planning is underway for the NC-ACS events surrounding National Chemistry Week 2011, October 16–22! National Chemistry Week is an annual celebration of chemistry in the lives of everyone and the positive role that chemistry and biochemistry play in society. The theme of this year’s National Chemistry Week is “Chemistry—Our Health, Our Future,” which will emphasize the role of chemistry in nutrition and medicine. The North Carolina section of the ACS has scheduled a public event for National Chemistry Week at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences to kick off NCW on Saturday, October 15, 2011 from 12:00-5:00 pm. The event will feature displays and demonstrations by local universities, businesses, and organizations that speak to the theme and can engage the minds of the public, both young and old. We are currently seeking volunteers who are interested in presenting a display at this event and inspiring young minds to the potential of chemistry in their lives! Please contact James Harrington at jmharrin@ncsu.edu or 919-513-3668 for additional details or to volunteer for this fun, exciting event!


ONLINE MIDDLE SCHOOL CHEMISTRY RESOURCE

-- from ACS Matters, April 5, 2011

middle

The ACS Education Division has developed a new middle school chemistry resource, "Middle School Chemistry: Big Ideas about the Very Small." This free, six-chapter resource can serve as either a stand-alone chemistry unit or as a supplement to any middle school science curriculum. "Middle School Chemistry" uses a hands-on inquiry approach along with specially designed molecular model animations, to take students from concrete experiences to an understanding of the world of atoms and molecules. Please share this free resource with middle school teachers you know!


ANDREAS WIERSCHEN, LOCAL ACS SCHOLAR

-- Contributed by Sara N. Paisner

scholarAndreas Wierschen, a native of Pomona, California, is a senior B.S. Chemistry major at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. In addition to being an ACS Scholar, supported by LORD Corporation in Cary, he is an Eagle Scout, a member of Phi Beta Kappa, and a Pogue Scholar. He has done undergraduate research in metal organic frameworks for two semesters under the guidance of Dr. Wenbin Lin. Andreas’s academic interests include physical and inorganic chemistry. He plans to go to graduate school to earn his Ph.D. in Chemistry, after which, he hopes to work in industry.

Outside of school, Andreas is an avid photographer. He enjoys traveling and outdoor activities, such as hiking and cycling. He hopes to backpack through Europe this summer. Andreas also likes collecting and listening to an eclectic selection of music.
