Sustainable Science: Contextualizing Chemistry Through Safer Hands-on Labs
August 2, 2021 - August 16, 2021
August 2 – August 16 , 2021
Synchronous class times:
8/2; 8/4; 8/9 10am-11:30am MST
Are you a CO science teacher interested in engaging strategies for NGSS aligned chemistry labs?
Join us to participate in a remote learning course designed to spark student interest and increase self-efficacy in high school chemistry and physical science classes.
Beyond Benign and Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment teamed up with local teachers to offer a FREE online course to CO science teachers. The training will provide tools to foster students’ critical thinking skills while developing a deeper understanding of how to construct explanations and design solutions through the lens of real world problems and innovative sustainable inventions.
Through a combination of synchronous and asynchronous learning, participants will walk away with a tool kit of open access resources and access to a network of other like-minded educators in the region.
Course topics include:
- NGSS aligned labs featuring easily accessible and safe materials
- Plug and play lessons for physical science and chemistry classrooms
- Lessons based on real world innovations
