“Science is not a field separate from the rest of society. It is heavily connected with other issues, and it is this interdependence – rather than just plain curiosity – that drives science to innovate and to contribute to our body of knowledge.
The Ateneo Chemistry Society is a home for chemistry enthusiasts that promotes the social application and appreciation of chemistry. This year, the organization will focus its impact in teaching and informing people of the relevance of chemistry in society. ACheS has projects that teach communities about the wonders of chemistry in creative ways. Our FB page is also active in posting engaging infographics and making stands aligned with the current science-related affairs of the nation.
Of course, an organization can never run properly without its people. We also have events that acknowledge the efforts of our members, and to just enjoy each other’s company. ”
