WHAT DOES CHEM CLUB DO? 

Chemistry Club is formally known as Student Members of the American Chemical Society, SM-ACS.

Chemistry Club meets every 2-3 weeks with the goals of increasing friendship and support among chemistry majors (though all majors are welcome) and initiating chemistry activities, such as field trips and speakers, outside the classroom.

SM-ACS serves the university by:
carrying out interactive experiments in the lobby of the science complex during National Chemistry Week (Oct. 20-26 this year; the theme is "Energy").

SM-ACS sponsors the Farewell to Graduating Seniors picnic in spring, at which we present graduating chemistry majors and Chem Club members with a chemistry medallion to be worn at graduation.

Chem Club sponsors field trips:
Montebello Water Treatment Plant,
Back River Wastewater Treatment Plant
National Cancer Institute,  Fort Detrick, Frederick MD
Maryland Public Health Lab

Chem Club encourages and organizes students to attend scientific meetings such as:
The National ACS Meeting once a year (2014 meeting is March 16-20 in Dallas, TX)
The local ACS section meetings; the local section’s website is www.mdchem.org

Medical Schools, School of Public Health
Baltimore City Teaching Residency Program

Chem Club serves the community:
The MUCH (Morgan Undergraduate Help Program), in which pairs of Morgan students visit a Baltimore City 5th grade class once a week for six weeks, leading the children in hands-on chemical experiments.
