National Chemistry Week
National Chemistry Week (NCW) is an annual event celebrating the contributions
of chemistry. The celebration originated in 1987 as National Chemistry
Day and by 1989 had grown into an entire week of activities. During
National Chemistry Week, local sections of the American Chemical Society
organize activities that correspond with an annual theme. Events are
held at museums, schools, libraries, shopping malls, and businesses,
year's (2001) theme for National Chemistry Week was Celebrating
Chemistry and Art and the Northeastern section of the American
Chemical Society (NESACS) held events in the Boston area.
