About The ECS Calgary Student Chapter

About ECS  Calgary Student Chapter


The Calgary ECS Student Chapter was established by chemistry graduate students at University of Calgary in Alberta, Canada, and is the second ECS Student Chapter to be formed in Canada. Viola Birss serves as a faculty advisor, and PhD students Beatriz Molero Sanchez, Lucie Nurdin, Farbod Sharif, Behzad Fuladpanjeh, Yalda Zamani and Luis Daniel Virla Alvarado were elected as President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer and members at large respectively. The Calgary ECS Student Chapter includes more than 25 members performing innovative research in electrochemistry.

This Student chapter provides a valuable link between students studying electrochemistry and industries located in Alberta. The Chapter aims to create opportunities for interaction with researchers and scientists from both academia and industry. The first Calgary ECS Student Chapter event was held on November 4, in conjunction with the annual meeting of the ECS Canadian Section. This successful event attracted new student members to the student chapter and to ECS.

Reverse Science Fair

The first event of the year had the chapter to participate in the University of Calgary’s Reverse Science Fair on the afternoon of March 3, 2018. The purpose of the event was to promote the interest in science and engineering for young children. The Calgary chapter decided to set up an electrochemistry booth to demonstrate fruit and vegetable batteries, including lemons, limes, apples, bananas and potatoes. Over 50 participants attended the event, including grade school children and their parents, where they initially guessed which fruit/vegetable battery would work, and then completed the circuit to light up the LED bulb. For each ‘battery’, the children also measured the potentials with a voltmeter. The chapter hopes to do more science outreach events during the year.
