ACS International Student Chapter

The ACS International Student Chapter at the University of Costa Rica was constituted in July, 2017 with Profs. José Leitón Chacón & Santiago Sandi-Urena as co-faculty advisers. Since then, chapter members have received several awards to attend international chemistry meetings (ACS, ABCChem) and to support their outreach.

Juan José and Ariel engage the audience during the demo event at the ACS Spring National Meeting in New Orleans, March 2018. (They were the only presenters from non-US territories.)
