Chem 13 News is a magazine published by the Chemistry Department at the University of Waterloo for teachers of introductory chemistry (primarily high school and community colleges). Now in its 43th year, the publication provides resource material each month and maintains an active website. The magazine’s goal is to support chemistry teachers and in turn provide students with better science and chemistry experiences in high school. The informal nature of the magazine allows teachers’ ideas, interests and views to be shared with other teachers.
