AirUCI's Mallory Hinks, grad student in the Nizkorodov group, is participating in the ACS ChemChamps Competition for younger chemists to explain their research or chemistry in general to non-scientists. She has created a three-minute video describing her research and will advance in the contest based on the number of people view her video.  Lend her a hand, and click here to watch her video.
The ACS ChemChamps takes place over four rounds.

  • Round 1: Shoot a 3 minutes video about your chemistry research or a chemistry concept (12 advance based on judging and views)
