We are a Professional Chemistry Fraternity, made of both Collegiate and Professional branches, committed to the advancement of chemistry. We find the science of chemistry entertaining and rewarding, and strive to share our enthusiasm with those around us. We believe in learning not only more about chemistry, but learning more about our fellow brothers along the way. These aspirations have been part of the fraternity since our founding in 1902 at the University of Wisconsin at Madison, and as such are the three objectives of the fraternity, found at the bottom of the page.
Our main goal is to promote the brotherhood and scholarship of chemistry. Our largest contributor is our chemistry magic shows. We perform at different venues including many places on campus, as well as at the various elementary and middle schools in Manhattan and surrounding cities. Our main goal at these shows is to show the amazing things that chemistry can explain, and have fun while doing it. We also have social events with our collegiate brothers, as well as the professional brothers.
