Southern Nevada ACS - HS Internship Opportunity

Tuesday, May 18, 2021 9:18 AM | Kate Fowler (Administrator)

This summer, The Southern Nevada Section of the American Chemical Society will serve as a research site for ACS Project SEED, a paid summer internship program for two economically disadvantaged high school students in Southern Nevada.  Student interns will use their artistic abilities to make graphic novels about Chemistry. 


Project Title:  Chemistry Graphic Novel

Duration: 10 weeks  

Project Description:

Chemistry can be a difficult area of study for most high school students.  In recent years, graphic novels have become popular among teenagers.  The goal of this project is to create a new mode of learning through graphic novels that will increase student engagement and understanding of chemistry.  Students will learn about a unit of chemistry, then create a graphic novel to teach all of the concepts within that unit.  The product will be at high-school level, align with the Next Generation Science Standards, utilize real world data and examples and incorporate assessments.  If there is time, additional units will be created.  

Eligibility:  Economically disadvantaged high school students.  One year of Chemistry is preferred, but not required. 


Students who participate in this program will receive a stipend as well as resources to create the graphic novel including:

  • A Surface Pro and  Pen
  • Software: Clip Studio Paint Pro
  • Access to eBook:  Chemistry a Molecular Approach (Tro)
  • Access to eBook: Chemistry in the Community (ACS)
