POLY: Chemistry for Reliable Human Space Exploration.
This two-day symposium is organized by CME and NASA with the principal sponsorship of the ACS Division of Polymer Chemistry (POLY). This symposium is part of the Fall 2021 five-day 262nd ACS National Meeting at the Atlanta Convention Center. Typical pre-COVID attendance of national meetings was more than 15,000. Over 2,400 STEM professionals and students have attended past CME NASA Symposiums from 2017 to 2019. The 2020 symposium was cancelled due to COVID.
The CME NASA STEM Symposiums focus on bringing together industry, academia, government and the public to enlarge and enhance the global STEM talent pool. It will feature the resiliency of science cutting-edge developments in chemical sciences to advance human space travel and translate them into new knowledge to improve the lives of people and make their dreams a reality. Two days packed with inspirational research, industry, jobs and new STEM career paths.
