American Chemical Society - St. Louis Section March 10

The Spring ACS meetings will be held on March 10 and  tentatively on April 14 (taxes are not due until the 18th this year!) 

             March 10th: meeting at Rockwood Summit High School.   Snacks will be served at 6:30 with the program to begin at 7:00.  The primary topic will be project-based learning.  We will spend some time discussing ways we involve students outside of the classroom and take a look at Summit’s biofuel production facility.  Both Summit and Burroughs teachers have developed programs around the exploration of biofuels.  Please come prepared to share what you may be doing in your schools to involve students in science outside of the classroom.  Maybe we can learn some new ways to pique student interest.  

            In addition, I hope to spend a few minutes sharing good teaching ideas that we have had this year.  If you’ve had an idea that “just worked,” please bring it.   So far, we have a liquid CO2 demo and a simple redox lab planned.
