Project MEET Mini-Grant Application

Project MEET welcomes proposals that bring together senior chemists with youth ages 3-17 for a mutual exchange of expertise and technological know-how. For example, senior chemists could provide a demonstration of engaging chemistry drawn from their own professional experience, and the children could capture a video on smartphones to share with the senior chemists how to upload the video to a YouTube channel, or share it with a friend on various social media outlets.  Activities and technology would depend on the interests and expertise of the participants. Mini-grants are available up to a maximum of $400 for an activity sponsored by an ACS Local Section.
