With the start of a new school year, here are some ways you can make chemistry come alive for teachers and students in preK-12, and then relax with ‰??Mystery of Matter.‰?? But share‰??always share!

Be a Science Coach and Help a Teacher Near You

ACS is looking to send 250 chemists back to the classroom‰??as ACS Science Coaches. Will you consider being one of them? You can choose the teacher/grade you want to work with, the school will get $500 to enhance science education, and you get the satisfaction of making a difference. Coaches help teachers by answering tough chemistry questions, advising students on careers in chemistry, assisting during science labs, or giving chemical safety tips. The requirements: Commit to six, 1-hour teacher visits over the course of a year; be a current or retired professional chemist, graduate student, or postdoctoral scholar; and have a passion for inspiring future generations of chemists. Enrollment for 2015-16 school year is now open. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis until October 30, 2015.

Share Adventures in Chemistry Web site

Share with teachers, parents and kids. This collection of games, videos, and other fun interactive content is aimed at preK-5 students to help them explore science, with household materials. Post on your social media networks or simply email or tell teachers/parents you know.

Watch, Tweet About, and Enjoy PBS‰??s new ‰??Mystery of Matter: Search for the Elements‰??

This new 3-hour PBS series was previewed at the Boston ACS meeting but begins airing around the country now. Check your local listings or watch it at . Post your reactions on social media and encourage others to watch it too. The cast includes several ACS members.
