About:

I CURRENTLY TEACH CHEMISTRY AT A GIRLS COLLEGE WHICH HAS AN ACTIVE OUTREACH PROGRAM THAT I AM LOOKING AT EXTENDING TO THE PRIMARY SCHOLLS IN MY AREA. IN PARTICULAR I THOUGHT THAT USING THE GLOBAL WATER EXPERIMENT TO DO THIS. GROUPS OF MY STUDENTS WOULD BECOME 'EXPERTS' AT THIS PROESS AND THEN TEACH THE YOUNGER STUDENTS HOW TO DO THE PH TESTING AND SUPPORT THEM IN IT. WE WOULD PROVIDE THE EQUIPMENT AND CHEMICALS AS WELL AS IN CLASS SUPPORT.
