The Martian Virtual Book Club Resources

The Virtual Book Club is officially live now! If you didn’t sign up before, you are still able to access and use all of the great resources we’ve created around Andy Weir’s The Martian! Check the blog each Thursday from now until May to follow our journey as we read the book, post background information about the activities and the book, and take a look at what the Clubs are sharing through #ACSChemClubBook.

There are two contests each with an opportunity to win a movie prize pack. Just share your photos, lists, calculations, etc. on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter using #ACSChemClubBook, or send your responses to
