S7: Integrating Green Chemistry Across the Curriculum: General and Organic Chemistry

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This symposium will highlight the incorporation of green and sustainable chemistry across the curriculum.  The symposium will examine new classroom teaching modules/courses, learning methods and educational research, as well as laboratory experiments and experiences having their roots in the Twelve Principles of Green Chemistry.  The symposium will focus on green chemistry materials designed to educate undergraduates at community colleges, four year colleges and graduate institutions.

Presider: Sarah Kennedy, Westminster College
