NSYCC & NESACS at the March for Science in Boston!

NSYCC Chair Catie Rawlins and NESACS Chair-Elect Mindy Levine gathered a group of ACS members to the March for Science at the Boston Common on April 22nd 2017. Despite the rain, there was a great enthusiasm and lots of clever signs! We look forward to the next steps to take to continue advocating for science and science funding with more events with the NESACS Government Affairs Committee.

NESACS Night at Fenway Park

Every year in the spring, NESACS reserves box tickets at Fenway Park to go to a Red Sox game as a group. This year NSYCC Chair Elect Felicia Lucci, Social Chair Ray Borg, and Career Chair Catie Rawlins attended the game which happened to land on Star Wars Day aka May the Fourth be with you! Sadly the Sox lost to the Tampa Bay Rays, but it was still a fun night with everyone!
