  11. Chemists Celebrate Earth Day A Historical Perspective

  12. History of Earth Day • First Earth Day – April 22, 1970 • Creation of Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson • As an environmental teach-in in response to an oil spill • First year: 20 million people • Now: 1 billion people in 192 countries Photo: US Senate

  13. ACS Celebration of Earth Day • Pilot celebration in 2003: “Chemis-TREE” • First full celebration in 2004: • “What Do You Know About H2O?” • Themes have rotated through earth-friendly topics • Air • Plants/Soil • Recycling • Water • ACS provides full range of resources for each theme.

  14. CCED Collaborations • Because Earth Day is celebrated by so many groups in almost all parts of the country, it is a perfect event for collaboration. • You can use this as a way to connect with other environmental groups in your area • Gives environmental dimension to chemistry • Can connect through the Earth Day Network: www.earthday.org

  15. Complement to NCW • CCED is ACS’s second largest outreach event • Those groups who already celebrate NCW would be prime partners for CCED

  16. Additional ACS Environmental Connections • New ACS resource specifically on climate science: www.acs.org/climatescience • ACS Committee on EnvironmentalImprovement • ACS Division of Environmental Chemistry

  17. How many times have you participated in CCED? • 1 time • 2-4 times • 5-8 times • All 9 times! • I have not participated so far

  18. Why do outreach? Mission – • To reach the public, particularly elementary and secondary school children, with positive messages about chemistry • To make a positive change in the public’s impression of chemistry • To promote a mechanism for effectively mobilizing ACS local sections • To motivate the ACS membership through local section activities

  19. Our Earth: Handle With Care • For the 10th anniversary we highlight the four themes: air, plants/soil, recycling, and water • Activities are centered around understanding and taking care of the Earth and its resources

  20. Inside “Celebrating Chemistry” • Review of the ACS Climate Science Toolkit • Meg A. Mole interview • Classroom-friendly activities with built-in safety notes • Advice on taking care of the Earth at school • Stories of recycling in San Francisco • Wordfind

  21. Outreach-friendly Activities • Make indicator paper in advance • Let kids use Q-tips to draw on the indicator paper • Compare ripe fruit to unripe fruit • Have some of the cabbage juice handy to show how it is done
