Boom, bam, whiz. National chemistry week is upon us. If you like pyrotechnics and explanations of the amazing chemistry behind demonstrations, you need to attend the national chemistry week celebration this October 19th at the University of Tennessee at Martin. I would also like to take this time to remind you that nominations for awards (outstanding high school teacher, professional chemist, and undergraduate research award) are due the day after the meeting. Please submit your nominations with the form posted on our website or to one of our officers by that date. Our September meeting at Union was well attended, so let’s continue that trend in these last two meetings of the year. Look forward to seeing you at this meeting or especially the gala Friday 10/13. Should be a fun time!
