Exploring Chemistry through Green Chemistry

High School and Middle School Teacher Workshop

Bridgewater State University CASE in collaboration with Beyond Benign, a nationally recognized non-profit organization dedicated to green chemistry education, invites high school and middle school STEM educators to an exciting day of professional development!  Our workshop will take place in the Dana Mohler Faria Science & Math Building and will feature interactive lessons and labs designed for and by teachers aligned to MA STE standards.

Throughout the day you will work with Beyond Benign staff and K-12 Lead Teachers along with BSU faculty and students on various hands-on chemistry laboratory activities. You will have access to Beyond Benign open-access resources, BSU teaching and research equipment, and the opportunity to network with educators from BSU and Beyond Benign. BSU chemistry students will serve as “Teaching Assistants” guiding you through the morning and afternoon hands-on activities.
