    The university’s Chemistry Club is bringing the American Chemical Society’s National Chemistry Week to TCU.

    Kayla Green, Chemistry Club’s sponsor and assistant professor of chemistry, said the club is new and has about 30 members. The organization is dedicated to sharing chemistry with the campus, community and eventually the world.

    To celebrate National Chemistry Week, there will be a periodic table of cupcakes in the chemistry library on Tuesday in Sid Richardson Hall. On Wednesday, there will be flubber-making at the library mall, and on Thursday, the club will have a fundraiser with Chick-fil-A. The club will sell Chick-fil-A sandwiches for $3 each at the library mall to raise money for tutoring underprivileged students for the TAKS test.

    The club members spend their Saturdays working for the philanthropy, tutoring children to prepare them for the TAKS test. Green said the club hoped to perform magic shows for the children in the future.
