Sparking Student Interest with Safer, Greener Chemistry

Looking for safer labs for your students? Looking for new ways to engage your students around sustainability and environmental challenges? Try these green chemistry labs that are both safe and exciting. Explore phenomena and fill your students with wonder while cultivating a safe and sustainable culture in your lab by examining chemical or physical changes and endothermic or exothermic reactions. The best part of all? You don’t deal with complicated post-lab disposal methods. All labs featured use green chemistry principles and practices, and are safe for you, your students, and the environment.

Hear from Annette Sebuyira and Jim Burdick, two active New York State Master Teachers and Beyond Benign Lead Teachers, and how they combine the inquiry process and green chemistry in their classroom to keep students engaged and curious. By sharing ready-to-use lesson plans, this webinar will spotlight NYS-aligned, open-access resources designed by K-12 teachers.

This free event is co-organized by Beyond Benign and New York State Pollution Prevention Institute.
