When I was a kid I had a chemistry set. Unfortunately, it was a pretty watered down version. I could create reactions that made liquids change colors, but that was about it. I always dreamed of having the chemistry set that my Dad had during his childhood. While it was a bit more dangerous, it sounded way more fun (explosions!). Maybe if I had access to a better chemistry set, I would have pursued Chemistry past my 10th grade class (my teacher that year didn’t help). That’s what the Chemical Education Foundation wants more kids to do. They’re an Arlington, VA based non-profit that “is committed to enhancing science education among every generation, beginning with our youth, by emphasizing the central role of chemistry in all the sciences and in our everyday lives.”

We’re All Made of Chemicals

Most kids don’t have a Dad who started college majoring in Chemical Engineering (he ended up being an Architect though), so most kids grow up with no chemistry set at all. Their only exposure to chemistry may be a single year in school. That’s not enough if we want our education system to continue to supply us with talented chemists. That’s why the Chemical Education Foundation was started by the National Association of Chemical Distributors in 1989. People in the chemical industry saw that most kids weren’t getting proper exposure to chemistry, so they created programs like You Be the Chemist. The Chemical Education Foundation’s website is pretty ugly, but they do have a Jobs page. Right now there are postings for a Outreach Assistant and a Communications Specialist.
