Lyrics, dance moves & practice times are included in this link.

Chemists Rap it Out: “I-Y-C!”


“Chemistry -- the central science, building blocks of life

Engineering new solutions, rid the world of its strife

We’re part of the solution, we ain’t no precipitate,

This is the chemistry dance, now get up and participate.”


Practice for the IYC Chemistry Show dance will be held Sunday, March 27th, 5:00 pm, Hall B, Anaheim Convention Center!

Learn a fun line dance and then join your colleagues on Monday, March 28 at 7:30 pm for a Tweet-Up in Hall B again, for the real deal. Tweet about it using: #acsanaheim #IYC2011 and #chem_amb (chemistry ambassadors)

Topic: celebrating chemistry, networking Audience: students, professional chemists, professors, educators, research scientists, industrial chemists, post graduate students
