The concepts of Green
Chemistry will be integral knowledge for all future scientists and educated
citizens. Education of these topics must begin at the K-12 level. Through Beyond Benign's K-12 educational programming, K-12
students and teachers are exposed to the principles of green chemistry while
engaging in hands-on learning of green chemistry technologies. The programs
encompass disciplines including chemistry, biology, math and engineering. This
presentation will introduce Beyond Benign's educational programs for K-12
teachers and students, with a focus on green chemistry and green math and
engineering curriculum.
