About the class:Chemistry is the study of matter and its interactions. They have already learned about the periodic table, atoms, etc. We will build upon this stuff, do a lot of labs, and add in a splash of math!Your student will think this is the
“Why study chemistry?”
I asked you to identify the top 10 issues that should be addressed to improve the quality of life globally – before the middle of this century.
Four out of these 10 are chemistry related and a couple others have scientific connections.
Every person on this earth deserves an opportunity to be educated so they can at LEAST somewhat understand these huge issues and the science behind them.
Some of my students today will be the scientists (etc) who will work to solve these problems for us!
