Catawba College Chemistry Students Recognized
December 10, 2008
Catawba College's Student Affiliates of the American Chemical Society were among student affiliates from five institutions recognized for their entry into the National Chemistry Week Chemvention contest. The entries were creative and innovative hands-on activities for elementary school children and centered on the 2009 theme of "Chemistry – It's Elemental."
Catawba College students were finalists in the Chemvention contest and will be recognized for their entry at the Student Affiliates Awards Ceremony to be held March 22 in Salt Lake City, Utah. These students also will have an abstract concerning their entry included in the national meeting program and are encouraged to make post presentations concerning their entry. As a finalist institution in the contest, Catawba's SAACS chapter received a $1,000 check to go toward travel to the ACS national meeting.
Senior Mary Black of Thomasville is president of Catawba's SAACS chapter.
