As of January 1, 2014, the Syracuse Section is now formally recognized as the Central New York Section of the American Chemical Society, or CNY ACS for short.
Now our name matches our mission as we continue to be a resource for chemistry and science in the CNY area.
The AACT is a new organization committed solely to developing a community for K-12 chemistry teachers. From the AACT website:
"The American Association of Chemistry Teachers (AACT) is a professional community by and for K–12 teachers of chemistry. Take advantage of AACT's benefits to connect with peers, discover quality classroom resources, and achieve your professional goals. Membership is open to educators and anyone with an interest in K–12 chemistry education."
Join the AACT now and be part of it all.The CNY Section's own Sally Mitchell recently was appointed as the Special Consultant of the AACT. In the future, this will be filled by the Past-Chair of the board.
