Kathy Ceceri’s Home Chemistry Blog

National Chemistry Week is October 21-27, 2007

From the website of the American Chemical Society:

National Chemistry Week (NCW) is a community-based program of the Office of Community Activities. This annual event unites ACS local section, businesses, schools, and individuals in communicating the importance of chemistry to our quality of life. Start with these resources and then explore the rest of our pages, below.

The University of Liverpool, Department of Chemistry offers over 300 biographies of famous chemists here.

HEM Columnist Kathy Ceceri recently wrote to tell me that she has started a new blog, Home Chemistry. The blog description states:

This is the year I have decided to finally tackle lab science with my

homeschooled kids (14 and 11). Despite horrendous memories of my own

experience in public high school chem (mostly centered around

experiments that didn’t work and savvier classmates who made out their

observation charts first, then invented the data to fit), I’m hoping

that — freed of state testing requirements and other barriers to having

fun — we’ll all get to enjoy the excitement of science without the angst.
