National Chemistry Week!

For National Chemistry Week, SCA members played “Periodic Table Scrabble”; decorated, distributed, and ate delicious “Element Cupcakes”; and put on a “cyanotype” demonstration (sorry, no photos–it was too cold!)

SCA Participates in Ewing Community Fest ’13

Check out these photos from the annual Community Fest! Kids of all ages had fun with our carbon dioxide and soap demonstration. As pieces of dry ice inside a bowl sublime, the vapor gets caught under a thin layer soap– creating bubbles!

Our New Sweatshirts!

Our New Sweatshirts!

We put up an album of submitted designs on our Facebook page and chose the one with the most “likes”. Like the sweatshirt? Order forms will be sent out soon–email if you don’t get one!


The Student Chemists Association would like to welcome back all the returning students and extend a warm welcome to all the new ones!

If you are unfamiliar with SCA, we are a campus-wide organization that loves Chemistry and all things related. We hold social-gatherings, fundraisers, go on field trips, and eat lots of pizza.

Speaking of which, our first meeting (PIZZA PARTY!) is this Wednesday, Sept. 11 at 12:30PM in room C-121. Join us as we introduce the new E-board, welcome the new members, and talk about a few of the things we are planning for this year– like scavenger hunts, board-game/movie nights, painting the walls of the Chemistry building, and maybe even a field trip to the Crayola factory!

We’re very excited for this semester/year and we hope you are, too!

SCA Goes to the Shore to Help the Victims of Hurricane Sandy

To commemorate Earth Day and help the victims of Hurricane Sandy, five TCNJ ACS student chapter members traveled to Point Pleasant, New Jersey to help “Restore the Shore.” While some students helped one family rebuild a fence, others shoveled sand and raked yards. It was an all-day outside event that enabled the students to help out with a great cause and meet some awesome people! Photos from the event are below:

SCA Presents in Sci-Mix @ #ACSNOLA

Seven TCNJ ACS student members attended the ACS New Orleans meeting. They included Marisa Sanders, Kristen DeMeester, Katherine McGarry, Lauren Cordeiro, Andrew Apicello, Kevin Lee, and John Farrokh. Six of the students presented their research at the meeting. Not only did the students present their research, but they also took the time to network. TCNJ’s student attendees really enjoyed the Speed Networking event sponsored by the ACS undergraduate program. One TCNJ ACS student member has recently been appointed to serve on the YCC, and so she pursued that at ACSNOLA. Three of the female attendees also took the time to network with the Women Chemists Committee by attending their luncheon. The following TCNJ faculty members attended the meeting: Dr. Abby O’Connor, Dr. Benny Chan, and Dr. David Laviska.

TCNJ’s ACS student chapter presented two posters during Sci-Mix: 1 was a summary of the events from this past year and another was a collage of photos from the Molecular Gastronomy event that we hosted in conjunction with Sodexo Dining Services. Below are photos from the conference:
