Over the past two semesters,
Alpha Chi Sigma of IUP has performed multiple chemistry presentations for local schools.
A select number of members, including Mara Menk, Taylor Rupert, Matt Griffith, Chasity Hankinson, Matt Janosko, Emily Welch, and Peter Stapleford, volunteered to present “Colors in Chemistry” for local schoolchildren. The outreach is in conjunction with the
Visiting Scientist Program directed by
Larry Kupchella. The result of these hands-on activities has fostered an excitement for future careers in chemistry.
Alpha Chi Sigma is a professional chemistry fraternity who promotes the advancement of chemistry as a science and a profession. Anyone interested in being involved in events such as these are welcome to join: all majors are accepted. For inquiries, please contact Mara Menk (
