Online Middle School Chemistry Resource

Wed, 23 Mar 2011 14:20 EDT

The ACS Education Division has developed a new middle school chemistry resource, "Middle School Chemistry: Big Ideas about the Very Small." This free, six-chapter resource can serve as either a stand-alone chemistry unit or as a supplement to any middle school science curriculum. "Middle School Chemistry" uses a hands-on inquiry approach along with specially designed molecular model animations, to take students from concrete experiences to an understanding of the world of atoms and molecules. Share this free resource with middle school teachers you know.(image)



Call for Proposals: GREET Program

Wed, 23 Mar 2011 14:20 EDT

Proposals are requested for the new Global Research Experiences, Exchanges, & Training (GREET) program. The GREET program is intended to support intensive, high-impact international chemistry research experience and collaboration opportunities for U.S. researchers by providing all-inclusive travel awards of up to $10,700 for at least five teams comprised of an early- to mid-career faculty mentor and a graduate or undergraduate student mentee. The experience is intended to significantly impact the student's career path and professional development while catalyzing new global collaborations. The deadline for applications is April 10th; visit www.acs.org/greet or send email to greet@acs.org for application materials and other details.(image)
