Mentor-A-Chemistry-Class jumps into gear this spring at University City High School, our very first school partner.
The Committee on Minority Affairs would like to invite all minority chemists, chemical professionals, and chemical business professionals to come with us as we introduce high school chemistry students to our careers in chemistry. The goal of this outreach opportunity is to expose high school sophomores to chemistry careers in the St Louis region and beyond, to give insight into chemistry degree programs and to help minority students think of chemistry as a degree and career path for them.
It will take a commitment of only one visit per semester to the school, to deliver an enthusiastic, informative description of your day on the job and answer questions. Email Cynthia Chapple for more information. Or, if you already like the idea and want to jump in with both feet, sign up here. Our first three dates are already set: February 8th, March 25th, and April 8th from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm. All we need is you.
