Solving Mysteries Through Chemistry for National Chemistry Week

Chemistry turns into Che-mystery for this year’s National Chemistry Week (NCW) celebration, with its focus on forensics. An upcoming free webinar will take the mystery out of preparing for it, with a wide range of resources to fit the 2016 theme.

Join me, along with co-presenter Rachel Murillo, on Thursday, September 15, 2016, 6:30 p.m. Eastern. Rachel brings her background in forensic anthropology to the webinar, along with her current work teaching high school forensic science. We’ll share forensics resources useful for National Chemistry Week, for integrating into classroom curriculum, and for informal science sharing. Anyone who wants to connect science to this high-interest, real world topic will find ready-to-use demonstrations, lab investigations, videos, background information, and more.

Register in advance for this free webinar. If you can’t attend the live presentation, visit the NSTA Web Seminars site later to view the archived webinar and to download related materials. You can also join in the backchannel chat on Twitter during and after the webinar; ACS ChemClub program leader Karen Kaleuati (@ACSChemClubs) and I (@EKJChem) will be using #ForensicsNCW.

Visit the American Chemical Society’s NCW page for information on the celebration.
