Systemic Approach In Teaching and Learning Chemistry (SATLC) Suggestion 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.

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.
