Subject: [DCHAS-L] Green Chemistry: The missing element in chemistry education
Join us for a webinar on October 15, 2014 2:00 PM EDT
by Dr. John C. Warner, President, Founder and C.T.O., Warner Babcock Institute for Green Chemistry
The Green Chemistry Commitment is proud to announce a new webinar series on Green Chemistry Education featuring relevant topics for chemistry faculty and students.
Join us for the first webinar in this series by Dr. John C. Warner. John will discuss the future of chemistry education and answer questions from the audience in the first webinar of the new Green Chemistry Education webinar series. To submit questions in advance, send them directly to Beyond Benign.
Chemists are the only people in the world who have the skills and abilities to create new molecules that have never existed before. The chemistry community has many wonderful accomplishments to be proud of over the years. But there is something missing in our education. We really are not providing chemists with a basic set of tools to interact with the toxicology and environmental health communities to help build safety and sustainability into our design strategies. In the 21st century, consumers, retailers and brand name companies are expecting more and more innovation around safety and environmental health in our everyday products and materials. Until we introduce adequate pedagogical information into our teaching curriculum, we will not be able to make significant advances that are deeply needed.
Dr. John C. Warner
