INSTITUTE, W. Va.—Student members of West Virginia State University‘s American Chemical Society (SMACS) were recently awarded a $250 grant to continue their outreach project to bring science to area high school students. This Community Interaction Grant from the American Chemical Society (ACS) is designed to improve the science learning experience of underrepresented minority and economically disadvantaged K-12 students.
The funding will provide equipment and supplies to enable students to perform additional science experiments in class. Students will also benefit from the assistance of WVSU students and instructors. The grant will be supplemented by the Brimhall Fund currently in place at WVSU.
Dr. Micheal Fultz, assistant professor of Chemistry, advises the WVSU student group. The WVSU Chemistry department is a member of the ACS, which is a congressionally chartered independent membership organization that represents professionals at all degree levels and in all fields of chemistry and sciences that involve chemistry.
