Apr 27, 2013 – YCC at Rutgers Day

Volunteers Needed for Rutgers Day!

Rutgers DayThe NJACS Younger Chemists Committee will have a table at the Rutgers Day 2013 festival, presenting interactive, entertaining, and educational activities for all ages focusing on UV.

We will be demoing UV beads to the kids. We welcome you to the volunteer for the whole day or half a day!

If you can participate, please Sign Up so we will have a head count of volunteers.

Children make their own UV detecting bracelet using UV-sensitive beads. When exposed to sunlight these beads take on a dazzling array of colors. With some simple experiments, families also learned how to test the power of UV rays, and how sunscreen protects you from UV over-exposure. This is a great opportunity for families to experience and enjoy science, while building awareness of the dangers of excessive sun exposure and learning how to protect your skin.

NJACS YCC participates annually at Rutgers Day. Everything is free!

Mar 7, 2012 – North Jersey YCC Trivia Night

We had a very successful Trivia night earlier this year, and hoped to recruit more members by holding one over the summer when we usually have fewer events.

The evening began with a social hour encouraging attendees to mingle and interact with each other over a game of pool or a piece of pizza. Members from our executive committee made themselves available to give attendees information on resume assistance, job placements, mentoring and upcoming events.

The evening ended with an opportunity to continue discussion while competing in the Fox and Hound’s Wednesday night trivia competition. Our team the “Isotopes” won 3rd place!

We would like to thank everyone, especially the new members, who attended the second NJYCC trivia night at the Fox and Hound in Edison, NJ. More happy hours coming soon…
