Bringing science to the community through targeted outreach activities is a vital extension of education and research in the chemical sciences at Boston College. Chemistry outreach conveys the excitement of discovery that is at the heart of scientific inquiry and that serves as a catalyst for learning. Chemistry outreach aims to demystify science through hands-on experiments that encourage learners of all ages to make connections and to see possibilities. We are proud of the creative outreach initiatives of our faculty, post-doctoral staff, and students. We invite you to visit these at:
