Abstract

This 1-day symposium is organized by CME and NASA under the sponsorship of the Polymeric Materials: Science & Engineering Division (PMSE) of the American Chemical Society (ACS). This symposium was part of the 5-day ACS 2017 Fall National Meeting at the Convention Center of Boston, MA, with typical attendance of more than 15,000. Over 600 STEM professionals and students attended the 1-day CME NASA Symposium in 2018.

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.
