Our K-12 Professional Development for teachers is aimed at bringing high-quality training in the theory and practice of green chemistry in the classroom.
Teacher Training workshops
One-day and multi-day workshops are delivered by Beyond Benign staff in partnership with Beyond Benign’s Lead Teachers and are held throughout the United States.
On-line courses in green chemistry (introductory and advanced courses) are offered for high school teachers, providing professional development points and graduate credits for continuing education for teachers.

frequently asked questions
How can I bring a workshop to my area?
We partner directly with local, regional and national education and science organizations to bring green chemistry workshops to teachers throughout the country. Learn about our Partnerships (link to partners page), or contact us to inquire about bringing a workshop to your area.
Is continuing education credit available?
Yes! Professional development points are typically provided at in-person workshops and depend on the length of the workshop and hours of training. Continuing education credits are available for our on-line courses.
What's the cost to attend your workshops?
We typically obtain sponsorship to carry out the workshops and offer teachers to attend free-of-charge. Workshops associated with a regional or national meeting may require conference registration fees to attend. And, our on-line courses require a fee due to the infrastructure and delivery of the course.
