"We are not just about blowing stuff up and making it look cool. We are about making a solar cell out of blackberry juice and glass slides." -Owen Williams '14
This month, Gordon College student chemists received a prestigious honor: two awards at the annual meeting of the American Chemical Society (ACS), of which Gordon College has a very active student chapter. At the group's national meeting in New Orleans this month, nine Gordon students were recognized with the Outstanding Student Chapter Award as well as a Green Chemistry Award. Receiving both awards together is the most elite recognition any chapter can receive, and only 25 other schools (from a pool of over a thousand) have received this honor.
