Greetings All,

I'm wondering if anyone has an established program for teaching specifically chemical safety as part of their outreach activities? We have gotten requests to teach chemical safety as part of community "safety day" activities. e.g. meet with fire fighters, police, EMTs etc

This is not a request for how to do demonstrations safely, or common demonstrations appropriate for outreach audiences, but rather what demonstrations are most effective for teaching basic principles of chemical safety to a young audience (K-12).

Thanks in advance,
