Green Chemistry Workshop
March 20, 2020 @ 8:30 am - 3:00 pm
This one-day workshop presented by a local Beyond Benign Green Chemistry Lead Teacher, Jim Burdick, will provide attendees with an overview of green chemistry, how to incorporate green chemistry into a Regents or middle school classroom, an introduction to green chemistry curriculum resources that replace hazardous chemicals in the classroom, and also provide a context for teaching chemistry through the lens of green chemistry with greener technologies. Attendees will receive paper and digital materials as well as participate in several lab activities that can easily be used in a Regents Chemistry or middle school science class. Attendees should come with paper or digital copies of labs that could be “greened” or made less hazardous. Remember, even acceptable risk can still be minimized to no risk. Please dress appropriately to work in a lab.
