National Chemistry Week

Hands-on science experiments for students in grades 2-6

National chemistry week 1 1920x1080

National Chemistry Week involves fun, hands-on activities that let you get close to the action! In 2022, in partnership with the American Chemical Society's Cleveland Section, we offered virtual and in-person programs to foster interest in science and chemistry.

How it works

The program is a contest consisting of fun, age-appropriate chemistry experiments. Students answered questions at the end of each experiment and submitted their answers along with a picture of an item they created.


Prizes were awarded to the top three submissions in each grade.

  • 1st Place - $100
  • 2nd Place - $75
  • 3rd Place - $50
