Outreach: ACS Science Coach Program

Tetramer Research Scientist, Ben Bergmann, had an opportunity to speak at a local high school as part of his participation in the American Chemical Society’s Science Coach program. In addition to lab demonstrations, he spoke with students about what it’s like to work in chemistry and engineering careers.

The ACS Science Coach program is an educational outreach initiative dedicated to enhancing science skills in students across the United States. The program pairs chemists (coaches) with AACT teacher members in elementary, middle, and high schools. Coaches accepted into the program will have the opportunity to form a valuable relationship with a teacher by volunteering face-to-face over the course of a school year.

Tetramer’s two purposes are to 1) get materials out of the lab and into the marketplace and 2) make great scientists. So, it’s always fun to get into the schools with the next generation of great scientists can be found!
