About Us

Scholarship

            We provide our members with guest speakers and workshops to enhance their academic experience at UCF, introduce them to chemistry in a professional setting, and provide them with tools to start preparing themselves for life after graduation.

Leadership

            Our club can't function without the dedication of our members who step up to run for officer positions and chair positions! Each semester, members have the opportunity to plan and lead projects. These are great opportunities to get involved and develop leadership skills!

Networking

           Creating a network of reputable colleagues and mentors can be key to finding your career path. ACS understands the importance of these relationships and provides its members with the tools they need to start building their own personal network including connecting them with other ACS chapters in Florida and reaching out to professionals in Orlando for networking opportunities.

Outreach

           One of our club's greatest prides is our commitment to the Orlando community. Our members have the chance to interact with Orlando kids, peers, and professionals and to share our love of all things science. Some of our ongoing community engagement programs include volunteering with the Orlando Science Center, Clean the World, and Second Harvest Food Bank. In addition, throughout the semester we teach science experiments at a local elementary school and host experiments during STEM Day at UCF.
