A good way to start is by combining things they are already interested with chemistry. I combined photography to get a photo scavenger hunt, clothes can be combined into a material science fashion show that highlights the importance of chemistry in materials, I combined the love of food with factory tours and guest speaker on the chemistry of food, I'm trying to setup a science mystery where you use science to solve...making it social, educational, fun, interactive and easy to learn. I'll be looking for 365 ideas to be used beyond IYC.
