Teachers of Chemistry Resource Group

TEACHERS: we are organizing evening coffee hour-jam sessions wherein we will brainstorm new demonstrations and walk though some lasting favorites. Supplies will be on hand to try some out. We aim to assemble a resource library of protocols that members of the group have found reliable and effective. We also look forward to a chance to meet one-another and form a community that can provide each of us with peer resources and colleagues. To add your name to our mailing list, please email Prof. Anne-Frances Miller.
