On Friday April 23, 2021 at 5 pm, the Chemical Society of Washington will be celebrating Earth Week 2021 by hosting an event in partnership with the STEM ED Community Club at Montgomery College, Rockville. The aim of this event is to bring public awareness to this important theme and to highlight what it means and why is it important to live sustainably. The STEM ED Club will coordinate the event with the CSW Education and Outreach Committees. The event will highlight a guest speaker, Emma Hubbard, who will present her innovation project for generating green energy. She is a student whose project was a finalist for the Quarter Zero Cup (an online entrepreneurial competition) and won the Helyx International Youth Research Summit in 2020.
In addition, The Club will engage the participants and attendees of this virtual event with interactive links from the ACS website and guide them with individual carbon footprint calculations. The electronic version of the Celebrating Chemistry newsletter for CCEW will be used as a resource too.
