The Chemistry Club at UC Davis is a dynamic social and academic club with an emphasis on outreach. We host many events throughout the year as well as chemistry demos for the community in order to promote the physical sciences.
Our officers consist of mostly undergraduate students in Chemistry. However this year we are lucky enough to have three graduate student representatives on our team as well as Professor Crabtree, Professor Kovnir, and Perry Gee as our staff advisors.
So far this year we have hosted movie nights in the chemistry courtyard on campus, a hiking trip in Rockville Park and brewery visit to Berryessa, chemistry demonstrations for birch lane elementary school, and attended an outreach event at the Lion’s Gate hotel in Sacramento to promote STEM to girl scouts.
We have much more planned for fall quarter and throughout the year including hosting a safety webinar through ACS and a presentation with AMPAC Fine Chemicals followed by a Q&A. We also have two outreach events planned for October one of which will occur at the Discovery Museum Science & Space Center in Sacramento on the 17th and 18th in honor of national chemistry week.
