The science of chemistry is fun, amazing, and in our everyday lives.

But the truth is, if students aren’t inspired by science when they are young — as early as five years old — it gets increasingly harder to engage them in learning.

When it comes to preparing the STEM workforce — those industries relying on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics — often the focus is on students in high school and post-secondary education.

That’s too late for students and the American workforce!

You Be The Chemist reaches students early – in grades K-8 – because this is when we best ignite a passion for chemistry and science-related careers.


You Be The Chemist uniquely connects business with schools and education programs in communities to reach students early in life.
