Green chemistry, also known as sustainable chemistry, is the practice of designing materials that reduce or eliminate the production of hazardous materials. During this program students will explore the 12 Principles of Green Chemistry and learn how this philosophy is changing the culture in chemical research and industry.
This program dives into green chemistry, a hot new area that is generating jobs for researchers in the industry as well as workers in the medical and health fields. Green chemists work on redesigning agricultural, industrial, and pharmaceutical products in order to reduce or eliminate the production of harmful and toxic byproducts. Green chemists also examine the effects of harmful chemicals on human and environmental health. Understandably, this is a booming area of job growth – a new, valuable field that is generating a wealth of employment opportunities.
Through guided lab activities and toxicology studies, teens will practice the process of developing an experiment, focusing on the importance of background research prior to developing an experimental design, how to incorporate effective controls, and the importance of demonstrating repeatable results.
