Additional resources provide information and materials to help facilitate incorporation of GEMs items into the curriculum.  As educators work with each GEMs item, they will develop classroom activities, demonstrations and assessment tools.  We hope to collect these items and make them available to users under the following headings.

  • Ideas for Implementation
  • Assessment Materials
  • Demonstrations and Classroom Activities
  • Links to Related Resources

Successful incorporation of green chemistry into the curriculum depends on the availability of support materials for instructors.  By providing an additional dissemination tool, we hope to improve the mechanism for documenting and increasing the visibility of educational materials development. Contact Julie Haack (541) 346-4604 or use our contact form to submit additional resources for this item.
