Mentoring the next generation of black chemists (video)
Date:2/27/2014

WASHINGTON, Feb. 27, 2014 The American Chemical Society (ACS) is wrapping up its celebration of Black History Month with a focus on the future. A new ACS video showcases the mentors that are helping shape the next generation of chemists and chemical engineers. The video is available at http://youtu.be/6pX4kmHIeAE.

The video, produced with the National Organization for the Professional Advancement of Black Chemists and Chemical Engineers (NOBCChE), highlights the efforts of Isiah Warner, Ph.D., Boyd Professor at Louisiana State University, to mentor students in the sciences from middle school all the way through a Ph.D. It also features Isai Urasa, Ph.D. He has trained more than 300 students in Hampton University's chemistry program, about 50 of whom have gone on to receive a Ph.D.

The video also features undergraduate students speaking about the people who got them interested in chemistry and their hopes for the future.

The previous videos in the series are available here.
