"The first words that come to mind when thinking of community engagement in Lynn are probably not "redox reactions," "electrons," and "cubic centimeters converted to milliliters."

Cookies and Scholarships
The Gordon College Student Chapter of the American Chemical Society ran a cookies-in-a-jar fundraiser during the holidays and it was a great success. Primarily through the support of the Gordon College family on campus, the chapter was able to allocate $1,300 directly targeted for “scholarship” awards for future freshman chemistry students.
Join us for the next cookie-in-a-jar event.
