The Symposium was organized by Solvay in association with CM&E and ACS. Solar Impulse is the first solar-powered aircraft to fly across America day and night without any fuel. This amazing machine of 63 meters (208 ft) in wingspan that weighs only 1600 kg (3520 lb) is a marvel of engineering, chemistry, physics, and most importantly, the human passion for perseverance and making the impossible dreams come true.
Picture above, from left: Andre Borschberg, Solar Impulse CEO and co-Founder, Jean-Pierre Clamadieu , CEO of Solvay, and Bertrand Piccard, co-Founder, SI Pilot and the first Balloonist to circumnavigate the Earth. The SI pilots expect to conduct the next Round-The-World Solar Flight with the latest generation of Solar Impulse in the year 2015.
These icons of the energy revolution were recognized by the CM&E group of the ACS New York Section at the sustainability symposium which featured eminent researchers on materials science, organic electronics, polymer synthesis, biomedical materials, colloids, artificial photosynthesis, self-assembly, hydrogels and soft matter.

Scholars embody CM&E's mission: inform, network, engage the public and advance STEM education
STEM Education is Key to Peace and Prosperity
Technological innovation has been by far the primary driver of economic growth. However, the share of science, technology engineering and mathematics (STEM) students has been declining in the USA. Compared to 46% in China, only 5% of USA high school graduates become STEM professionals.
