The Philippine Society of Youth Science Clubs (PSYSC) announces the holding of the 2011 National Science Club Month (NSCM) Celebration for science clubs in all elementary and secondary schools nationwide pursuant to Presidential No. 264, which declares September of every year as the National Science Club Month (NSCM). This year's theme is "CHEMERGY: Chemistry and Science Clubbing in Synergy". The theme means the power of cooperation of chemistry and science in working together to produce a result not obtainable by chemistry alone or by science alone. They need each other in order to produce a certain kind of result. Thus without the other one, the desired result cannot be achieved. As part of the 2011 National Science Club Month (NSCM) celebration, the PSYSC will conduct the following activities:
