Welcome to The Draper Chemical Society
The Draper Society exists to further understanding of the chemical sciences as a scientific discipline and its role in society at large. We want to be not only an organization of chemistry students, but also a community for anyone who has an interest in chemistry. We wish to have a vital role in furthering scientific understanding amongst our non-science major peers and students in primary and secondary schools. To this end we are a service society that aids students in furthering their understanding of the chemical sciences. We aim to enrich the science education of these students.
What is left in Fall 2012?
We hope that everybody is having a successful and chemistry-filled semester! The Draper Society has hosted a number of events thus far, such as our contribution to the New York Hall of Sciences experimental displays, the alumni chat with Dr. Raymond Doss, and our recent presentation from Professor Scott Miller of Yale University. We learned a lot from all of these events and would like to thank everyone who participated and those who came to speak with us. Everything was of course very much appreciated.
For the remainder of the semester, you can feel free to join us in volunteering at the Henry Street Settlement. The HSS is an organization in the Lower East Side with whom DCS has partnered in the past. We have had a lot of success in tutoring younger students in grade school in our beloved field. You can contact Vicente Ochoa at firstname.lastname@example.org to get more details on how you can help. The time commitment is minimal, just one hour per week.
One more thing, chemistry enthusiasts! We all have exams and finals on the way, and if you are looking for something chemistry-related that isn't an exam, make sure to check the chemistry department home page for any news or events. We are very proud to announce that our own Dr. Marcus Weck was featured on the cover of this month's Nature for his research on colloid bonding. You can check out his article here. We would like to extend a huge congratulations to Dr. Weck, and we are all VERY proud to call you our professor. Thank you for continuing to teach and inspire us.
As always, don't hesitate to contact us at email@example.com with any questions or comments.
