CENTC graduate students have partnered with the IDEA Institute to host Science Saturdays. The program brings 9-12 grade students from the Metro Detroit area to the University of Michigan campus for an intensive all day event where they participate in several activites that introduce them to methods used in contemporary research in chemistry. See the IDEA Institute website for more information.
University of Washington, Seattle, WA
Graduate students and post-doctoral fellows
have developed a three-day program on biofuels for physical sciences
and chemistry classes. The program is designed to support and enhance
the curriculum currently taught in high school chemistry, and also to
convey the broad impact of chemistry and the role of chemists in
solving major issues of societal importance.
