The upcoming ACS meeting in San Francisco also features green and sustainab
le chemistry stuff. In fact, “Chemistry for a Sustainable World&
#8221; is the theme of the entire meeting.
John Warner, of the Warner-Babcock Institute for Green Chemistry [and a fou nder of Beyond Benign], will be presenting tomorrow, March 21 at 8:45 a.m. a t the ACS meeting. While these sessions are supposedly for high school folk, their content can certainly be adapted for Chem 101.
Try Googling “green chemistry instruction” and/or similar terms .
The New England Association of Chemistry Teachers’ [www.neact.org] Ma y meeting will be held at Beyond Benign, and will feature hands-on activitie s and take-home lesson plans.
< FONT COLOR="#1F497D">I am working with faculty to determine a “green chemistry” approach to a general chemistry class for university freshmen, i.e. Chemistry 101. The purpose of the approach is a safer and more sustainable teaching method as well as our lac k of budget to support engineering controls for solvent use during the class . Currently, we are looking at the American Chemical Society (ACS) for possible leads. We are searching for contacts who may have taken this approach for their curriculum. If you know of anyone who has implemen ted such an approach can you please pass their contact information to me. Thanks in advance,
