Alaska Local Section

Activities

Hosting Science Fairs.

On March 13, 2010, the Juneau sub-section participated in the annual Intel Southeast Alaska Regional Science Fair.  The Alaska Local Section would like to thank Dr. Lawrence Schaufler and Rick Heffern for their roles in making this a successful event, as well as the other section members that assisted in judging for the fair.  Moreover, we congratulate Evan Carnahan and Zander Hoke, Juneau-Douglas High School students whose projects won the two ACS-sponsored Science Fair awards this year.  Their projects were:

"How Different Concentrations of MgCl2 and NaCl Affect the Corrosion Rates of Mild Steel" by Evan Carnahan

"Hydrogen Production in Microbial Electrolytic Cells" by Zander Hoke
