September Event
"The Flavor of Chemistry: A taste of wine, cheese and olive oil"

    Treat your senses to an afternoon of chemistry and food! On September 12, 2015, the California, Sacramento and Santa Clara Valley local sections invite you to attend an afternoon of lectures on and tastings of wine, cheese and olive oil. See our meeting page for more information.

International Chemistry Olympiad Gold Medalist
    The Section is proud of David Wang, a senior from Monta Vista High School who won a gold medal while representing the U.S. at the 47th International Chemistry Olympiad in Baku, Azerbaijan, July 20-29, 2015. Check out this C&EN for an article on his win. To prepare for this adventure, David scored among the top 20 students nationally on the national Chemistry Olympiad qualifying exam and then attended the study camp at the Air Force Academy in early June. This is second time David attended the study camp.

    The Section is supporting local teachers of chemistry by paying half the cost of membership in the American Association of Chemistry Teachers (AACT). Annual dues in the AACT are $50; we'll refund $25 of that if you follow the instructions you will find by clicking here. Click here for a pdf.
