Community Service Projects

SAACS members are geared up for Spring when they will take on the 5th grade class at Colgate Elementary School and challenge students to a vigorous day of chemistry.  If you are interested in helping this event will take place toward the end of March beginning of April.

 

February is Black History Month.  In honor of this celebration SAACS members are asked to submit a one page description of an African American in science.  All contributions are asked to be posted on the SAACS bulletin board outside of the chemistry computer learning center in Smith Hall by Friday February 13, 2004
