About Us

Spark is UCSD ACSSA’s program for educational outreach in chemistry. Our goal is to expose students to the excitement of science earlier in their career and to encourage science exploration beyond the classroom. We are a passionate group of individuals that has developed a program that brings engaging chemistry demonstrations straight to schools, giving young students the science exposure critical to sparking their curiosity.

We are a branch of the American Chemical Society Student Affiliate (ACSSA) at the University of California, San Diego. As a student chapter of the American Chemical Society, ACSSA aims to open the chemistry world to our undergraduate students as well as our San Diego community.
