American Chemical Society 1155 Sixteenth Street, N.W. Washington, D.C. 20036 T [800] 227 5558 F [202] 872 4353 Celebrate National Chemistry Week (NCW) 2010! Theme: “Behind the Scenes with Chemistry!” October 17-23, 2010 Chemistry is everywhere, whether prominent as a science fair project or tucked behind the scenes of a special effect or book. Current shows such as MYTHBUSTERS and books such as The Science of Harry Potter bring behind the scenes science to prominent view. This allows the public to understand it is not magic, but rather common chemistry topics which can explain the mystery behind the seemingly “magic” that is shown. We want to diminish the term “magic” associated with the “unexplainable” and direct attention to the chemistry which makes these items work. Community Event: Science in the Cinema Science Café K-12 Contest: The National poster contest is focused on “Where’s the Chemistry?”
