The New York Section of the American Chemical Society will host a virtual Chemagination Competition in Spring 2021. Chemagination consist of a submitted article along with answers to questions.
For this event, high school students are asked to imagine that they are living 25 years in the future and have been invited to write an article for ChemMatters, a magazine for high school students that focuses on the role of chemistry in everyday life. Students are also asked to design the magazine cover. The subject of the article is:
"Describe a recent breakthrough or innovation in chemistry (and/or its applications) that has improved the quality of people's lives today."
The article must be written to fit in one of four categories: Alternative Energy, Environment, Medicine/Health or New Materials.
First place category winners from Local ACS Sections' Chemagination contests will be eligible to participate in the regional Chemagination contest at the 2021 Middle Atlantic Regional Meeting held at the University of Delaware on Saturday June 12, 2021.
