Young students entering the science field take on a significant amount of new material and learning in the classrooms, but that doesn’t mean we can’t learn just as much from them, too! ECS student chapters, ran and created by students themselves, inspire us every day. Their remarkable accomplishments and contributions to the Society not only help guide and encourage talented scientists and engineers around them but also contribute to the future and growth of the sciences.

What Inspires You?

One doesn’t have to look back far into history to be inspired by the great minds of electrochemistry and solid state science and technology. There is much to be inspired by in the here and now.

Our research community is grappling with problems that can change the future for the Earth—and discover more about Mars. And pioneers are creating innovative technology applications that touch virtually everyone’s lives—through the electronics we use to the medical devices that keep us alive. Opportunities abound in the theory and practice of our burgeoning field, with new discoveries and applications developed practically every day. (more…)

It’s Personal … And Professional

Using Social Media To Connect With Your Professional Community

Social media is a great way to boost your visibility as a serious student of solid state and electrochemical science, learn about important developments and key players in the field, build your ECS Student Chapter, and launch/navigate your career.

When you engage on social media as a professional, your membership in ECS’s unique community gives you a springboard. You can employ ECS’s Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, and YouTube channels to build your network, share valuable research you discover, and help share ECS news. When you publish research, social media is a great tool for enhancing the discovery of your paper, and research indicates that social sharing increases the likelihood of citations and replications.

Here are some tips to help you effectively promote your professional self, your ECS Student Chapter, and your work on social media: (more…)
