After School Chemistry Partnership Program
The Penn State Berks Chapter of the American Chemical Society is partnering with the Lehigh Valley Section of the American Chemical Society (LVACS) for the LVACS Afterschool Chemistry Partnership Program!
Not only do the students learn about chemistry careers, and summer research opportunities for high schoolers through the ACS Project SEED Program, but weekly activities also include free fun experiments, themed demonstrations, guest speakers, a movie watch party, book club, and more!
Here's what the students are saying about ASCPP: "I think that the ChemSTEM Club is really good and I enjoyed it a lot. I got to learn about new things and overall think about what I want to do with my future in STEM." "Yes, I really like the program. I have learned a lot in that program and I have been very interested in science since I began to hear about the various things you can do as a scientist and as an inventor. They treat me well and they are all very kind, the classes are good and they give me a lot of inspiration to be able to be with my dream."
Liliana Arias, student support specialist for MEP in the Lehigh Valley, comments: "Thank you for giving our middle and high school migrant students such an awesome opportunity to be a part of the LV ACS after-school partnership program. They are not only engaged in virtual and hands-on science activities and discussions but thinking about what to do now and in the future for their post-secondary goals."
