Symposium of Green Chemistry in the CECyT 15 Suggestion David Yafté Díaz-Sánchez | added on Jun 08, 2010 A symposium about "Green Chemistry" in the CECyT 15, inviting the people dedicated to the chemistry, to taking part in this event.
|Topic:||green chemistry.||Audience:||students, scientists, teachers, professional chemists.|
Microscale Experiments in Environmental Chemistry Suggestion Shrivallabh Kamat | added on May 21, 2010 Environmental Chemistry experiments are designed to study atmospheric pollution by gases like CO2, oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and oxides of sulfur (SOx). The major sources of CO2, CO, (SOx) and (NOx) are the burning of fossil fuels by vehicles and industries.

Systemic Approach In Teaching and Learning Chemistry (SATLC) Suggestion M. Akhyar Farrukh | added on Dec 01, 2009 Systemic approach is the arrangement and recognition of concepts i.e. how one concept or issue is related and linked with other concepts or issues in a system while teaching and learning chemistry. Systemic approach is a structured way while linear approach is un-structured way for delivering knowledge.
|Topic:||hands-on activities, training, workshops, conferences, classrooms||Audience:||students, educators, teachers, professional chemists, universities, general public|
Small Scale Chemistry Suggestion Julia Hasler | added on Nov 30, 2009 This UNESCO project introduces teachers, inspectors, and education officials to the advantage of performing chemistry experiments on a small scale. Introductory workshops to this hands-on chemistry methodology promote putting experimentation back into science education.
