Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum and The American Chemical Society are hosting a full day of hands-on activities and stage demonstrations to teach museumgoers and middle school students about the importance of chemistry, all in the name of National Chemistry Week (NCW).

You can RSVP on our Facebook event here.

If you’d like to volunteer to run hands-on activities, please register here.

If you can’t attend this event, you can still raise awareness of chemistry during NCW by organizing a hands-on science event, hosting a community event, and sharing the digital version of the Celebrating Chemistry publication with your local kids and teachers. From October 21-27, don’t forget to post to your favorite social media about the importance of chemistry using the #NationalChemistryWeek hashtag. More information is available at
