National Chemistry Week

Notice: in light of COVID-19 restrictions, all BYU celebrations of National Chemistry Week (NCW) events have been cancelled. Sorry to cancel your — and our — favorite holiday!

National Chemistry Week is an awareness program held by the American Chemical Society (ACS). This annual program endeavors to unite and educate chemistry students, teachers, scholars, professionals, amateurs, and general fanatics in regards to the importance chemistry plays in our quality of life. NCW occurs on the third week of October each year.

This year’s NCW, which will be held October 18th-24th, is themed Sticking with Chemistry. Click here to access the ACS’s website, which is chock-full of fun ideas for celebrating National Chemistry Week at home.
