The Student Members of the American Chemical Society (SMACS) chapter at the University of Tennessee at Martin will sponsor a clinic March 23 to help area Boy Scouts earn the chemistry merit badge.

The clinic gets under way at 8:30 a.m. in the Joseph E. Johnson Engineering and Physical Sciences Building on the UT Martin campus. It will end about noon.
Scoutmasters and/or parents may register their Boy Scouts by calling (731) 881-7454 or emailing SMACS@utm.edu or email@example.com. To register, include the name of each scout, his scoutmaster’s name and his troop number by March 20.
