The Minnesota Green Chemistry Forum is pleased to present their fifth annual conference, The Midwest Bioeconomy and Safer Products Summit: Regional Innovations Solving Global Problems, at the Minneapolis Central Library on Thursday, February 19th, 2015.
In its fifth year, the Minnesota Green Chemistry Forum's premier event has expanded its focus to the greater Midwest, uniting the traditional green chemistry and bioeconomy sectors.
This workshop introduces science educators to green chemistry and supporting curricular resources. Green chemistry principles aim to reduce waste and product toxicity impacting the classroom and extending to our daily lives.
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.
