The Chemical Educational Foundation (CEF) (www.chemed.org) is looking for chemists to use in You Be The Chemist Challenge marketing pieces and events for this year’s “careers in chemistry” theme. (The Challenge is an academic competition for grade 5-8 students that focuses on chemistry and its real-world applications.) For example, we might feature a few chemists on a periodic table poster to distribute to schools. We are looking for employed chemists between the ages of 20-35 (i.e., people middle school students could see themselves becoming in 15 years) who can provide us with: 1) a high-quality headshot and 2) a few sentences about what they do, focusing on aspects of their job in chemistry that might be of particular interest to grade 5-8 students.
If interested, please send a headshot and a few sentences about what you do to Elena Lien at elien -at- chemed/dot/org by September 19.Enjoy!
