How to Catalyze Student Engagement with Green Chemistry


Are you looking to increase student engagement in chemistry and physical science classes? Green chemistry provides K-12 students the context through which to engage with science, while inspiring them to be innovators and problem solvers. Educators embrace green chemistry principles and practices for its seamless connections to state standards and the benefits it brings to the laboratory include: increase in safety, reduction of use of hazardous materials for labs and reduction in the cost of typical lab supplies. Green chemistry is the design of chemical products and processes that reduce or eliminate the use or generation of hazardous substances.

Learn why the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment and Beyond Benign are teaming up to build a community of green chemistry educators in Colorado. Hear from Michael Maudal a chemistry teacher at Cherry Creek High School with experience using green chemistry in his classroom to increase relevance of chemistry to everyday life, foster student confidence in chemistry concepts and use safe lab practices to reduce hazards in the classroom. Join us for this interactive webinar to learn more about how to integrate green chemistry into your classroom and participate in our question and answer session at the conclusion of the webinar.
