Integrating Chemistry & Polymer Science Research into the Classroom

Incorporating current research in high school and junior college science classrooms provides an opportunity to enrich laboratories and lectures and enhance student interest in the chemical sciences.  The Symposium will focus on the development of classroom lessons and laboratory activities that integrate ‘real world’ applications of current research topics.  Teachers, graduate students, and university faculty members participating in NSF GK-12 or RET programs are encouraged to participate.   Speakers will give insight into successful strategies on integrating research and engaging student interest.
