Fall 2014 ChemEd X Newsletter

Chemical Education Xchange


For our U.S. readers, this newsletter marks the beginning of the 2014-2015 school year. Summer has come to an end and teachers are adjusting to another year. We hope you will find ChemEd X to be a valuable resource and source of inspiration. Consider sharing your own ideas at ChemEd X. We will happily accept your manuscript to be reviewed by our team of high school and college chemistry teachers.

ChemEd X is an interactive resource. Please take the opportunity to share your own thoughts, ideas and comments about posts and resources that you find on the site. Comments are moderated to ensure friendly, on-topic discourse. 

Best Wishes for a productive school year!

Cheers, Deanna Cullen
