The Spectroscopy Society of Pittsburgh (SSP), along with our sister society, the Society for Analytical Chemists of Pittsburgh (SACP), are non-profit organizations dedicated to furthering science education in the Western Pennsylvania region.
To that end, with proceeds from Pittcon, we support member education programs, teacher and student awards, a wide variety of educational programs, and grant programs for high schools, colleges, and beginning university professors.
If you wish to speak to someone concerning SSP/SACP programs, awards, grants or just to say hi, contact us at (412) 825-3220, extension 212, or by email at email@example.com.
