I have 3 students (2 males and 1 female) that I am trying to bring to the 2013 spring ACS National Meeting in New Orleans.
Are there any students out there that would be interested in sharing hotel rooms with my students in order to save money?
Since the new ACS CPT guidelines have come out, our department has begun having discussions about ideas for changes in the curriculum. As part of this process, we are trying to define the skills that we think a BS-level chemistry graduate should have. We have a good start on skills that aren’t specific to a discipline (literature searching, databases, writing reports in the format of a journal article, presenting research/lab results, scientific ethics, safety, etc.) Now we’re focusing on skills (not content knowledge) that our majors should have.
This week, Department Chairs of all ACS Certified Departments will be sent a letter to inform them that they may now nominate students for the 2010 ACS Division of Inorganic Chemistry Undergraduate Award in Inorganic Chemistry. Every chemistry department is eligible to give one of these awards by nominating their student at http://www.ionicviper.org/dicaward on or before June 30, 2010.
