New York Green Chemistry PLT
February 16, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
From ocean plastic to forest fires, our world needs invention, innovation, and creativity to find solutions to our biggest problems. Green chemistry, also known as the science of solutions, offers a framework for decreasing hazards within classrooms while promoting sustainability for both human health and the environment. Whether you are new to thinking about sustainability in the classroom or have already implemented green chemistry lesson plans, we want you to join us. Together, we will create a community of Green Chemistry educators within the state of NY.
During our time together, NY teachers will share and collaborate in the creation of NYSSLS Aligned Green Chemistry Labs, videos of implementing labs, and lesson plans spotlighting NY Industries practicing green chemistry. We may feature guest speakers who are leaders in sustainable science. Most importantly, together we will share lessons and labs as we work together to add sustainability into our sciences. Please complete the enclosed short form to join the PLT team. This is a continuation of last year’s PLT, but new members are welcome! If you have any questions, please contact Jim Burdick at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This PLT is for teachers in grades 6 -12.
