What do we do?
We have put together
a "Magic Show" for elementary school children, in which we do
cool and fun experiments in the lab that will get the kids
interested in the sciences. We also do community service by
collecting sample sizes of soaps, shampoos and toiletries for
the Domestic Abuse Council. In the spring, we help area Boy
Scouts to earn their Science Badges. We helped about 100 Boy
Scouts in February 2004.
We were given a Certificate of
Recognition in the spring of 2003 by the Department of Student
Life, Stetson University, for Service to the Community.
We were also awarded an Honorable
Mention for our efforts in 2001-2002 by the American Chemical
What is the American Chemical
The American Chemical Society is a
professional organization of more than 150,000 individual
members at all degree levels and in all fields of chemistry.
It is based in Washington, D.C. We have provided a link on
this page to the ACS web site.
Do I have to be a Chemistry/Biochemistry Major
to join SAACS?
Absolutely not! In fact,
Rachel Dykes, the President of the Stetson Chapter of SAACS in
2001-2002, when we won Honorable Mention, was a Biology major,
who is now enrolled in a Medical Technology Program in
Jacksonville. You just have to have an interest in helping in
our activities, in order to join SAACS.
