During 2012, the Northeastern Section of the American Chemical Society (NESACS) will continue and expand upon its activities of 2011 under the "umbrella" of IYC+1.
NESACS is one of the 190 local sections of the American Chemical Society (ACS). With more than 7,000 members, it encompasses Eastern Massachusetts and all of New Hampshire; it is contiguous with the Rhode Island, Central Massachusetts, Maine, and Vermont local sections. During 2012, NESACS will celebrate IYC+1 with monthly meetings, lectures, seminars, science cafés, workshops for high school teachers, and outreach activities for young people and the general public. It is anticipated that many thousands of individuals will be impacted directly and indirectly by the message of the importance of chemistry to their lives.
