In the return of a popular NESACS tradition, NESACS members, and friends of NESACS are invited to Fenway Park on Friday, May 10th to watch the Red Sox play the Toronto Blue Jays. Our right field grandstand seats are priced at $35 and include handling charges.  These tickets will go fast! Reserve your seats by mailing your check (payable to NESACS) to Anna Singer, 12 Corcoran Road, Burlington, MA 01803.  Questions (but not reservations) may be sent to secretary@nesacs.org.

Science By The Pint

Sbtp Spring back option

The Younger Chemists Committee will attend the monthly Science by the Pint events and we have a table in the back room of the Burren (located at the Davis Square T-stop). Visiting scientists and their graduate students visit each table, giving us a great opportunity to not only meet other YCC members, but meet scientists in different disciplines as well, expanding your network while learning about the “hottest scientific” topics from those doing the research!
