Owlchemy: The Rice Undergraduate Chemistry Society
Students can become an American Chemical Society Student Affiliate through participation in the Owlchemy Club. Owlchemy: The Rice Undergraduate Chemistry Society formed from the merger of two previous undergraduate chemistry organizations, Owlchemy and RUCS. In addition to continuing Owlchemy's commitment to education through volunteering and demonstrations, the club seeks to provide academic and career resources, serve as a liason to the chemistry faculty and graduate students, and create a social network of support for Rice chemistry undergraduates. The club's mission is to improve the overall academic and social interations of both incoming freshmen and upperclassmen, while promoting the study of chemistry campus and community-wide. If you are interested in joining Owlchemy or have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Fun with Chemistry
Fun with Chemistry is an outreach organization dedicated to inspiring and motivating K-12 students to develop an interest in and pursue careers in science fields. Our chapter at Rice University is organized by Prof. László Kürti and Dr. Kasey Leigh Yearty, and our volunteers consist of a diverse range of both graduate and undergraduate students. We perform exciting chemistry shows in the Houston area and participate in community outreach events. One of our primary goals is to increase the number of girls and underrepresented minorities in science, as well as help K-12 students reimagine who can be a scientist.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Book Club: The Chemistry DEI book club is hosted by graduate students, with faculty and undergraduate student participants. Meeting biweekly, this group reads literature that sparks engaging, insightful, and necessary conversations surrounding topics within the scientific community. The group also looks for meaningful ways to create even more inclusive working and learning environments for all departmental citizens. Books are provided free of charge, and all are welcome to attend at any point throughout the year. Please email email@example.com if you are interested in joining.
