POAB held its fourth You Be The Chemist Challenge on Monday, March 5, 2018 at Moraine Valley Community College. The Challenge is designed to educate middle school students about important chemistry concepts, historical discoveries and laboratory safety. The Chemical Education Foundation creates the study materials and develops the questions for the event. Chicago Drug & Chemical Association provides the funding for supplies and prizes.
In March, 2019 , We will need about 15 volunteers to make the Challenge run smoothly. Report time is 4:30pm on the day of the event. This is a great community outreach event. Please contact Mary Schoenheider to volunteer by email (firstname.lastname@example.org ) or call 815-723-8819.
