Electrochemical Society Recognizes Lewis University Student Group Again

Published: October 15, 2019.

For the second consecutive year, Lewis University was recognized by the Electrochemical Society as a Chapter of Excellence.

The Electrochemical Society recognizes up to three student chapters — one being named the Outstanding Student Chapter and up to two being named Chapters of Excellence. In order to be recognized, there must be apparent contributions, activities, outreach, and participation that correspond to the mission of the Electrochemical society. More specifically, the student chapter must focus on advancing theory and practice at the forefront of electrochemical and solid-state science and technology, and allied subjects.

The Lewis University student chapter of the Electrochemical Society was featured in the Electrochemical Society Interface publication (see link: http://interface.ecsdl.org/content/current) to showcase the student chapter. The article features a picture of the Lewis University student chapter and faculty mentors while highlighting some of the events the chapter organized this past year. The article also showcased the most recent publication from members of the chapter titled: “Unraveling Slurry Chemistry/Nanoparticle/Polymeric Membrane Adsorption Relevant to Cu Chemical Mechanical Planarization” (see link: http://jss.ecsdl.org/content/8/5/P3022.full) which was in the top five most downloaded papers published for the journal.

For the ECS Lewis University Student Chapter, the 2018–2019 academic year was focused on sharing passion for science with the community. One of the chapter’s standout events was a “Spooky Science” Haunted House event held just before Halloween, where the chapter was able to show the connection between science and the Halloween experience. ECS members transformed the Science Center labs into different themes such as forensics, astrophysics and optics which attracted over 400 people. 

Dedicated to reaching out to the community, the Lewis University Student Chapter held numerous demonstration shows throughout the academic year at various schools and libraries that promote STEM, ultimately allowing the participants to do hands-on science.

Lewis University chemistry students also traveled to Dallas in May to present their research at the 235th International Electrochemical Society Meeting. Dozens of Lewis University students presented their research during the general student poster session.

Dr. Jason Keleher, chair and professor of chemistry, serves as the faculty adviser for the Lewis University ECS Student Chapter.
