Georgia Tech joins the American Chemical Society as it celebrates National Chemistry Week 2008 the week of October 19-25. This year's theme, in connection with last summer's Olympic Games in Beijing, is "Having a Ball with Chemistry," which explores the chemistry of sports. Chemistry is connected to sports through its role in developing new materials (shoes, clothing, equipment, etc.) and improving performance (metabolism, nutrition, etc).

Georgia Tech Event:The Georgia Tech Women in Chemistry will host students from four local high schools for a National Chemistry Week outreach event on Wednesday, October 22. High school students will interact with GT faculty and students in lectures, demonstrations, hands-on labs and a student panel. The high school students will also display posters they created for the National Chemistry Week theme at noon in the atrium of the MSE building.

Community Event: The Georgia Local Section of the American Chemical Society is sponsoring a Science Cafe on the topic "The Ethics of Sports Enhancement" on Thursday, October 23rd at 6:30 p.m at Java Vino, 579 N Highland Ave, Atlanta, GA.
