POLYED is a consortium of groups interested in science education in general and polymer education in particular.
Membership is derived from the American Chemical Society Divisions of Polymer Chemistry (POLY) and Polymeric Materials: Science and Engineering (PMSE).
Major support is provided from these divisions and approximately fifty industrial sponsors. The major purpose of POLYED is the nurturing of education at all levels, from kindergarten through post-graduate education.
POLYED has working relationships with many education oriented technical groups, including the American Chemical Society and the Society Committee on Education, the ACS Division of Chemical Education, the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, the Society of Plastics Engineers, the ACS Rubber Division, and the National Science Teachers Association.
