Can you use your knowledge of chemistry to figure out what is going on in this blue/green/yellow/blue color change?
Rocketbook is billed as ¨The last notebook you will ever buy¨. In short, that statement could very well be true. A Rocketbook consists of a notebook of specialized paper.
The differing electrostatic and solubility properties of starch and polystyrene foam packing peanuts are used in various demonstrations to describe aspects of microplastics and their interactions with the environment. Their differing responses to exposure to liquid nitrogen and iodine solutions are also described.
Helping students develop abstract understanding is a universal goal. This article describes an activity that involves students developing and then solving novel quantitative chemistry problems following a MadLibsTM style framework.

Beyond Benign develops and supports teachers to advance sustainable science education. Learn how these teachers are practicing Green Chemistry in the classroom, mentoring colleagues, and growing professional learning communities.
To the point; no fluff. Communication so succinct that the message lands. Pardon the pun to Chemistry, but too many words dilute a message. The result: students remember nothing.
Summertime means doing chemistry experiments with flowers found growing in the yard...
