    K.C. Wang, a recognized Distinguished Member, raised $1430 in an Arsenic Education Initiative. Thanks K.C.

  4. JSYK Post: Chemists Without Borders goes Clubbing

    Remember when we used to go Clubbing? Maybe not.

    I remember not getting into Studio 54 in 1983. The long line, to get in, started moving. We were excited to see the famous New York City (NYC) Studio 54 dance club. The bouncer turned the beautiful couple ahead of us to the right, he turned Gus and I to the left. The next thing we knew we were on the curb. I guess NYC clubs just want the beautiful people.

    Well, Chemists Without Borders want you!

    For years, Chemists Without Borders University Chapters have competed with university chemistry clubs. Why?

    Chemists Without Borders Chapters forces students to focus less on Chemistry and more on organization administration tasks. What Chemists Without Borders really needs are people and resources to help with new Project Concepts:

    Test
    Validate
    Promote (local awareness)

    For example, our Arsenic Education Project has three phases (steps):

    1) SOPs (Standard Operating Procedures)
    2) Testing
    3) Teaching

    The UCSB chemistry club may help with the last two phases: Testing (SONO filtering, Test Kits) and Teaching (webinars, Southern California Arsenic Education).

    Remember the valuable Community Outreach Awareness that will occur for your club, your university, as well as with Chemists Without Borders. We are all trying to make a positive difference in the world.

    It is a Win-Win-Win.

    LouCiabattoni(@Chemists Without Border.org) will be contacting any student/alumni members that have expressed an interest in chapters (now just an existing chemistry club relationship) or if you have a club connection interest then email him.
