Congratulations to the officers, members and advisor of the ACS Club on an excellent and event-filled year! Some of the highlights of this year’s activities included participation in the Welcome Picnic and Haunted Hallways, making a Chemis-tree, coordinating and running the annual SU Magic Show, coordinating and running a magic show at a local high school, creating slime, making and eating ice cream and creating bouncy balls. The club just received notification that it is now an official American Chemical Society Affiliate Club! Special thanks to the club officers Anna, Janice, Josh, Hannah, Shelby and Stephen and to the club advisor, Mrs. Diane Payne, for all of their hard work this year!
Congratulations to chemistry senior, Dalilah Brown, on receiving the American Chemical Society Maryland Section Student Award from Stevenson University. She was officially recognized at a local ACS meeting in April and at SU at the School of the Sciences May Celebration. Dalilah received this award for her high academic performance in upper-level chemistry courses and laboratory experiences and her participation in departmental activities and projects. Congratulations, Dalilah!
(continued from previous blog)… are Monique Scott-Hayes (left) and Mary Eden. When asked what they were doing, they asked to be quoted exactly: ”We are noble young scientists and science geeks. We are pursuing a future in the art of scientific research.” And, they were having a great time in lab that afternoon!
Several senior science students gathered for a celebratory lunch today at TGI Friday’s before the School of the Sciences Poster Session. They were excited to see President Kevin Manning at the restaurant! President Manning greeted all of them, took a picture with them, and helped pay for their lunch. Warm thanks to President Manning from our students!
Congratulations to the 2013 Honors General Chemistry II students on their successful completion of the end of year demonstrations! Each student independently planned, practiced and performed an experiment related to the material covered during their freshmen chemistry course. The class also produced a booklet with procedures for each demonstration with safety precautions and a complete explanation of the chemistry behind each experiment. Congratulations to the students and to their instructor, Mrs. Diane Payne!
