I do not have specific ideas, but if you are interested, you are welcome to apply. I would strongly support you.
Young-Jin, ACS Ames Local Section Chair/
LSAC is sponsoring two pilot grants with funding available to local section members to support key ACS strategic initiatives:
Facilitate member participation in virtual events though a Local Section Virtual Event Participation Grant;
Mutual Exchange of Expertise in Technologies: Project MEET
Virtual Event Participation Grant
Local Sections can be awarded seed funding to plan and implement hardware and/or software infrastructure to facilitate the ability of Section members to participate in events from a remote location. LSAC can fund up to $1,500 per application submitted. Read more about this funding opportunity and apply.
Local Sections can be awarded funding to plan an event that brings together senior chemists with youth ages 3-17 for a mutual exchange of expertise and technological know-how. For example, senior chemists could provide a demonstration of engaging chemistry drawn from their own professional experience, and the children could capture a video on smartphones to share with the senior chemists how to upload the video to a YouTube channel, or share it with a friend on various social media outlets. Activities and technology would depend on the interests and expertise of the participants. Mini-grants are available up to a maximum of $400 for an activity sponsored by an ACS Local Section. Apply for this funding opportunity.
Important Note: Monday, October 17th is the deadline to submit applications for both the LSAC Virtual Event Participation Grant and Project MEET.
