Chemistry Club

Chemistry Club is the student chapter of the American Chemical Society (ACS), the largest organization for chemists and chemical engineers.

We promote outreach activities to create awareness of science in our community. We partner with Keep Midland Beautiful for Earth Day activities and Petroleum Museum for Halloween and Family Science Day Events.

We encourage our members to develop leadership skills by organizing fundraising and speaker series. Students of all majors are welcome to meetings and events.

Activities

Students from the Midland College chapter of the American Chemical Society participated in the Student Leadership Institute organized by MC on February 1, 2020.

Jasmine Pryor, Khait Sarapao and Jonathan Markgraff participated in the whole-day event. There were speakers from the community, including Midland Mayor  Patrick Payton. The sessions were very informative and engaging.

Each year, in celebration of National Chemistry Week (NCW), MC Chemistry Club students and faculty advisors host a hands-on outreach event at Midland Park Mall.

NCW is a public awareness campaign that promotes the value of chemistry in everyday life. American Chemistry Society members and chemistry enthusiasts celebrate NCW by coordinating events and communicating the importance of chemistry.
