Weekend Plans Part 2

This is a wonderful weekend to be a chemist in Boston, because we are starting National Chemistry Week on Sunday with an enormous chemistry celebration at the Boston Science Museum. Check out this link: and plan to be there to celebrate!

But what is National Chemistry Week, you might ask? Well, it started as National Chemistry Day in 1987, and was expanded to a full week of chemistry celebrations a few years later, in 1989. The week is organized by the National American Chemical Society (ACS). Each year it has a theme, and local ACS sections are encouraged to plan a variety of activities for community outreach around this theme. Check out the Wikipedia link for more information about National Chemistry Week ( This year’s theme is Chemistry is Out of This World, so expect a variety of space-related science activities at the Museum of Science Celebration!

Chemistry celebrations not your thing? Maybe you are more interested in the Halloween themes this month! If so, this is a great weekend to get in the Halloween spirit, including with a Jamaica Pond Lantern Parade on Saturday and Sunday evening ( or with a Jack O Lantern journey at the Franklin Park Zoo (! Rhode Island area readers and Halloween enthusiasts, check out some of your more local events, including the Jack O Lantern spectacular at the Roger Williams Zoo (

Enjoy the weekend, scientists! Have fun!
