Good Chemistry: Health & Wellness for Kids

Kids and Parents at ACS Health & Wellness Event

Hundreds of children and parents in the Boston area got first-hand experience with health and wellness topics Sunday during a special event at the 234th national meeting of the American Chemical Society. Theygathered at the Museum of Science in Boston for a program entitled “Chemistry in Action: Health and Wellness.” It featured experiments on protection from ultraviolet rays, healthful food choices, testing for glucose and other health and wellness-related subjects.

The objective was to give children a better appreciation for science and scientists and to help them understand the many ways chemistry affects their everyday lives. Lending a hand at the event were volunteers from ACS Student Affiliates Chapters in the greater Boston area; ACS member volunteers from the Committee on Community Activities; and ACS staff. The ACS Office of Community Activities sponsored the event. (more) (less)
