inventEd 2021: Inventing An Equitable Future
February 3, 2021 @ 2:30 pm - 3:00 pm
Connecting Invention and Chemistry for Impactful Student Engagement Spotlight
Beyond Benign and Musuem of Science, Boston will highlight collaborative efforts to explore the synergies of the Invention Education and ChemAttitudes Framework to showcase the impact on student learning by combining chemistry and invention. A key component of this collaboration is to drive awareness and adoption of invention education to the broader chemistry education community, specifically targeting under-represented student communities.
Participants will hear from Energy Institute High School’s Loren Kristik and her high school student Ben Barnes (2020-2021 JV InvenTeam Member) about how they bridged the two frameworks and put sustainable invention into practice. The Green Chemistry, Invention Education and ChemAttitudes Framework Case Study will be shared with the community for addtional insights and ideas on how to identify other leverage opportunities to expand integrating invention education with other traditional STEM fields.
