We are reinstating our ADSE blog! We hope to use this blog as a platform to communicate the exciting events that our local chapters put on. We incredibly proud of the breadth of work by our chapters, including outreach activities, socials, and seminars in the last few months.
ADSE@Berkeley hosted a picnic as a celebration of the end of finals.
A warm welcome to our newest chapter, ADSE@NEU! The chapter started its speaker series and hosted Prof. Elena Jakubikova (NC State), who spoke about her journey in science. The chapter also hosted an Earth day focused on plastics sustainability and development of new polymers with keynote speaker Joanne Stubbe (MIT). Check out a recent article featuring the efforts by this chapter.
