The New England Association of Chemistry Teachers is holding its 73rd Summer Conference from August 6 – 9, 2012 at Bridgewater State University in Bridgewater, Massachusetts. This year’s theme is “Advances in Green Chemistry."
Several speakers and workshops have already been scheduled. Lab-Aids and WH Freeman Publishers will set up their wares and others may join them. The Annual Banquet will be held on Tuesday evening and all are invited. PDPs and Continuing Education Credits will be available for teachers. In the evenings all will have a special access to the Bridgewater Observatory and to view the stars and planets, weather permitting. You can also expect the usual warm hospitality and engaging conversations that have become an important part of these gatherings.
Bridgewater State is the site of a new state-of- the-art science facility that opened this past September. Ed Brush, the Chemistry Department Chair, is working with NEACT to make this a truly memorable experience.
The projected participant costs at this time include: full participation ( program, room and board) - $400 or less, commuters (program only) about $150 or a daily attendance fee for one day or more. Financial Aid awards will be available to the participants who qualify and will be determined by the number of applicants.
If you are interested in leading a workshop on a “green” topic or any topic of interest to you, or if you have a speaker in mind that we should contact, please pass along that information to our program chair, NEACT President –Elect, Mary Christian-Madden at firstname.lastname@example.org.
