The Virginia Section will be participating in the annual ACS CCEW activities by having a special program at the Science Museum of Virginia. The Science Museum is expecting over 1500 persons for this Earth Day event. The Virginia Section will have a variety of demonstrations and hands-on activities for children and adults who attend.  Dr. Kristine Smetana is coordinating the ACS program. The Topic for the 2024 CCEW is Batteries and the theme is “Get a Charge Out of Chemistry.” Help will be needed to organize things, do the set-up, and assist participants at the event. Contact Kristine at

We will be needing lots of volunteers for this event. Feel free to register and pass the information along to students, colleagues, etc.
