Kabete National Polytechnic
At the Polytechnic, our TVET curriculum covers all major chemistry programs. Green Chemistry is treated as an ‘emerging issue’ thus is covered in theory under General Chemistry, Organic, Inorganic, Physical, Biochemistry, and toxicology. Students are also encouraged to undertake Green Chemistry projects during their final year of research.
Diploma in Analytical Chemistry
Diploma in Industrial Chemistry
General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry, Physical Chemistry, Biochemistry, Faculty research, Student research, Student Chapter/Club Activities and/or Outreach
- Integrating green chemistry throughout the lectures and labs instead of having an independent green chemistry or toxicology course.
- Have professionals come into the classroom or give a webinar lecture on toxicology or green chemistry during one of the class sessions within a course.
- Incorporate green chemistry into student research, so students can better understand the difference and benefits of greener vs. traditional methods.
- Student chemistry clubs or other departmental groups perform K-12 outreach or department events on campus using green chemistry-related activities.
