Atlanta Science Festival

We had a pretty good time at the Atlanta Science Festival teaching people about polarity. There was fake snow, paper chromatography, and “rainbow” test tubes with layers separated by polarity and density. You should come and visit us next year.

Future Tech

On February 27, our friends Rebecca, Anabel, Markace and Kelsey, representing SAACS, performed some demos for Future Tech. Future Tech is an event held at Georgia Tech for Atlanta middle school students to promote STEM fields with informational sessions and interactive demonstrations (among which are our awesome demos!). The demos performed were: Electroplating pennies (coating […]

We won an award!

Our chapter won an American Chemical Society Commendable Award, which is the second highest award that the ACS gives. It also happens to be the top honor our chapter has ever won.

Atlanta Science Festival

Get excited! We are a community partner of the Atlanta Science Festival and we will be doing a booth this year (Spring 2016) at the exploration expo. Curious about what this mysterious Atlanta Science Festival is? Learn more on their site here.

National Chemistry Week

Now that National Chemistry Week has come and gone, I wanted to give a recap on what all we did to celebrate. On Monday we gave out periodic table cookies in the Georgia Tech Student Center. Everyone that came up to us was pretty happy about them. They also tasted fantastic- I can confirm that. […]

Dinner with a Professor- Dr. Evans edition

Yesterday we had dinner with Georgia Tech’s director of freshman chemistry labs, Dr. Evans. (He’s the one who looks like a slightly older college student, fourth from the left). We had a great time at Delia’s Chicken Sausage Stand and talked about all kinds of things like what classes to take when, home ownership, Halloween, […]

JJ’s Playhouse

Yesterday, Saturday September 19, SAACS volunteered with the local ACS chapter and JJ’s Playhouse to put on the event Chemistry Mixology. 3 students from Georgia Tech, along with several from Mercer University (the university hosting this event) got together to tell younger kids what exactly chemists do. Jennifer Knaack presented and introduced the experiments while […]

Boggs Open House

Come meet the officers of SAACS at the Boggs Open House! We will be make liquid nitrogen ice cream and answering any and all questions about the club, the new Boggs, and Georgia Tech life in general.

Boggs Renovations

Check out this article about the newly-renovated second floor of Boggs. Boggs is of course our lovely chemistry building known for the cozy you-could-survive-a-nuclear-war-in-here feeling. Additionally, the Chemistry & BioChemistry majors lounge is on the second floor, which is also where SAACS meetings take place. Check out the snazzy new digs.

New Fundraising Method

SAACS is trying out a new way to raise funds for our organization. Welzoo is a website that allows you to fundraise for student organizations or charities. If you make Welzoo your homepage, they will donate 3 cents to our club each day you go on the internet. We’ve already raise 7 dollars! Click on […]
