Many chemists communicate chemistry’s value through science outreach and interactive chemistry events. Research demonstrates that these events and similar experiences can increase positive participant attitudes towards chemistry. Using this research, we present practical guidance in how to format, select content, and facilitate effective interactive chemistry activities. Basic information will be provided about various developmental levels to help you reach participants of different ages, whether within a school or at a standalone event.
This course is designed for both new and experienced outreach event organizers and other engaged volunteers who would like to engage the public in learning and doing chemistry.
