Get A Charge Out Of Chemistry

Celebrating John Muir’s 186th Birthday 
And The 54rd Anniversary Of Earth Day

Cal ACS will be there with hands-on chemistry, featuring the 2024 Earth Week theme,

Get A Charge Out Of Chemistry
Recárgate Con La Química

The California Section will join numerous other community and educational organizations for the return of this Earth Day celebration to Martinez.  Look for the Cal ACS canopy, where visitors will discover how to build a battery like the one Alessandro Volta invented in 1799.  They can also try splitting water by electrolysis, using electricity from photovoltaic panels.  And, they can make their own UV light-detecting bracelet using photochromic beads.

If you can help out at the ACS booth, please contact Sushila Kanodia.  See you there!
