The Detroit Section needs speakers for our monthly programs.  We have different forums for the presentations so the material does not have to be “state-of the art,” highly technical research.  If you have an interesting hobby or want to present some of your work which is science related we would like to hear from you.  Many of the most popular talk are on the topic of food or a hobby.  Remember, chemistry can be fun!

If interested please complete the contact form, click HERE.
