Small Scale Chemistry Suggestion 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.
Topic: hands-on activities, teaching resources Audience: teachers, educators

Young Ambassadors for Chemistry Discussion Discussion Lida Schoen   |   added on Nov 30, 2009 The YAC project intends to train teachers to help students communicate the benefits of chemistry. One aim of a YAC event is to popularize and raise public awareness of chemistry by encouraging young students to act as ambassadors for chemistry. If you know of a similar program, I would love to learn about it.
Topic: game, hands-on activities, show, science fair Audience: teachers, students, general public

Chemistry on Wheels Suggestion Suggestion Wolfram Koch   |   added on Nov 30, 2009 A rolling chemistry laboratory toured Germany in 2003. It was one of many events organized during that year, and carried out by many committed men and women in chemistry. Let's plan to do as well in 2011!
