Students on campuses around the world are expressing a strong interest in sustainability. Educators realize that sustainable chemical innovation is complex and requires a broad and sophisticated mix of approaches and educational strategies. Green chemistry offers an important set of design principles that successfully fuels sustainable innovation.
To date, green chemistry education has been targeted at chemistry courses. In this webinar, Dr. Julie Haack will describe what faculty at the University of Oregon have learned from infusing green chemistry into the general science curriculum. She will describe the exciting opportunities and challenges associated with this work and also highlight some of the emerging design strategies that are proving catalytic in developing new educational materials to meet the emerging demand.
