The new JV InvenTeam Green Chemistry Activity Guide will encourage students to use green chemistry principles to invent bioplastics. Students will learn how chemists can apply green chemistry principles to invent products and materials that reduce harmful impacts on humans and the environment. Educators and students will be lead through a 7-part project to explore sustainable invention.
- Invention Introduction
- Inventing for a Sustainable Future
- Reuse and Explore
- Experimenting with Bioplastics
- Optimizing our Bioplastic Inventions
- Communicating Green Chemistry Ideas
