As students across Minnesota enjoyed a long weekend, some of their teachers at the Education Minnesota Professional Conference at the St. Paul RiverCentre learned how to make chemistry classrooms safer and greener. During the October 16 workshop, educators from elementary, middle, and high schools across the state learned about the importance of green chemistry and how to teach their students about green chemistry so they will be prepared for this fast growing sector.
The MGCF is committed to fostering a common understanding among businesses, government, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and academia to advance green chemistry practice and policy in Minnesota and nationally. Learn more.
