ACS Chemagination Competition for High School Students
Chemagination is designed to encourage high school students to think about the future impact of chemistry on their lives and society.
High school students are asked to imagine that they are living 25 years in the future and are writing for ChemMatters, a magazine for high school students that focuses on the role of chemistry in everyday life. The editor chooses them to them to write the cover article for the next issue of the magazine describing a recent breakthrough or innovation in chemistry and its applications that improve the lives of those living in that future time. Along with the article they have the honor of designing the magazine’s cover. The subject of the article is: “Describe a recent breakthrough or innovation in chemistry (and/or its applications) that has improved the quality of people’s lives today.” The article must be written to fit in one of four categories: Alternative Energy, Environment, Medicine/Health, or New Materials.
