Professional chemical engineers are available to make science classroom presentations with hands-on activities for students in grades 1-12 through the Student Outreach Program of the Chicago Section of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE). Presentations can be tailored to suit the needs of your class. Volunteer presenters will use Power Point presentations and simple hands-on experiments that are available for viewing at the Section's web site (www.aiche-chicago.org). Popular topics include cleaning up an oil spill, scaling up a small alphabet soup recipe, making ice cream, and explaining the chemical engineering profession.
To request an AIChE Science Ambassador to visit your classroom, contact the AIChE Chicago Section at 847-588-3840 or email me at [EMAIL PROTECTED] Presentations are sponsored by the AIChE Chicago Section; there is no charge to the school. The purpose of the program is to expose students to chemical engineers and the chemical engineering profession, and to help improve scientific literacy. Founded in 1908, AIChE is a nonprofit professional association of more than 50,000 members that provides leadership in advancing the chemical engineering profession.
