American Chemical Society (ACS)

The Student Affiliates of the American Chemical Society at NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering provides a professional network where students are given the opportunity to network with peers and professionals in the field of chemistry and biology, to gain experience in public speaking and presentations, as well as foster interest in the field of chemistry in younger generations. We reactivated on September 2008 and since then have been reaching out to students with an interest in science-related fields. We plan to collaborate with the School of Engineering's AIChE to unite all those interested in pursuing science-related fields. We support outreach for younger students, participate in various competitions, conduct research, and will have group trips to various chemistry laboratories, museums and professional conferences.

The objects of this chapter shall be to afford an opportunity for students to become better acquainted, to secure the intellectual stimulation that arises from professional association, to obtain experience in preparing and presenting technical material before chemical audiences, to foster a professional spirit among the members, to instill a professional pride in the chemical sciences, and to foster an awareness of the responsibilities and challenges facing the modern chemist.
This chapter has won awards each year since reactivation.
