Caroline Mooney, a senior undergraduate student perusing a Communications major and Marketing minor from Fordham University explored the connection between media and Green Chemistry for her Media and the Environment course by volunteering her time as part of a class assignment to create and share the article below with our community.
As our world has shifted online, teaching techniques have also adapted to these changes through the use of mobile, web, and other e-learning tools to ensure every student gains a rich education. While this transition may have proven to be a challenge for some, educators seized the opportunity to invite TikTok creations into the classroom, helping non-scientists learn about the benefits of Green Chemistry for their own health. Be a part of the change – Follow TheChemistryCollective on TikTok.
Through the use of TikTok services, students from non-science backgrounds can engage with Green Chemistry education by participating in fun and easy-to-do experiments at home! Learn more about the green side of TikTok by reading The Journal of Chemistry Education paper by Dr. Katie Lamb & Glenn A. Hurts from the Green Chemistry Centre of Excellence (GCCE) at the University of York on how TikTok can be used to facilitate scientific public engagement and for contextualization of chemistry at home here.
We thank Caroline for her time and energy in exploring and amplifying this great resource for learning Green Chemistry!
