The group was developed for undergraduate students who are interested in learning more about the chemical sciences. The student members have the opportunity to build organizational, leadership and professional skills with the assistance of a faculty mentor. The students also have a chance to explore Chemical and Engineering News (CEN) online and CEN-Chemjobs.org. The ACS also publishes an annual directory of experience opportunities that lists co-ops, internships, and summer work opportunities.
