Abstract

The ACS Student Affiliates Chapter from the University of Puerto Rico-Arecibo (UPRA) Campus is an active member since 2003. Our chapter has been awarded as an Outstanding, Commendable and Honorable Chapter. We are proud to say that we are also a Green Chemistry Chapter. The strength of our chapter was the dedication and connection of its members to the association. Together we influence people of all ages using the transforming power of chemistry. Our chapter conducts service events including school visits to perform chemical demonstrations, field trips, professional development workshops and seminars, and chapter business meetings, among others. Some of our amazing activities included impacting homeschoolers and girls’ scouts with chemical and green chemistry demonstrations. Our chapter has had a positive impact on the Department of Physics and Chemistry and our university bringing other associations including the Chemical Technology Student Association (AETQ), Future Pharmacists Association, Aullido Verde, Puerto Rico Pre-Dental Association to participate in some of our activities to promote the importance of chemistry and environment awareness among students. Last year a significant achievement was the opening of our first HS Chem Club with the Trina Padilla Sanz High School. Other Chem Clubs are ongoing with various private and public high schools. This was easily achieved since they were willing and eager to make this connection. For the promotion of the Mole Day, we celebrated the activity titled Mole Challenge, our most expected activity by the university community. Participating students competed in solving riddles and finding clues to advance to the next challenge. Our chapter has always participated in activities sponsored by the PR Local Chapter including performing chemical demonstrations in the Festival de Química at El Paseo La Princesa in San Juan, PR. Activities related to the International Year of the Periodic Table are being planned and scheduled. We feel very proud of being part of the ACS Chapter at UPR-Arecibo.
