Default Anaheim ACS Meeting - Informal Chemistry Education - Call forpapers



It's time to submit abstracts for the Anaheim national meeting! Since the
Division of Chemical Education offers many interesting symposia,
we wanted to be sure you were aware of "INFORMAL CHEMISTRY EDUCATION:
ENTHUSIASTIC EDUCATIONAL ENDEAVORS."

What exactly do we mean by "informal" education?

Really, the term is inclusive of any activity outside the standard, formal
classroom lecture method. Especially of interest is any outreach to a
non-classroom audience or novel experiences you bring to your classroom that
present chemistry in a new and enthusiastic way.

For example,

o workshops
o community outreach
o demonstrations
o field trips
o service projects
o games
o skits
o puzzles
o artwork
o exhibits
o web development

Any creative method that you have found for sharing your enthusiasm for
science outside a standard classroom lecture would be of interest. The
(formal) description of the symposium is reproduced below.

Submit your abstract through the ACS OASYS system at:

[Only registered users see links. ]

Then scroll down to the "Informal Chemistry Education" symposium (the tenth
on the list) and click "Submit Topic Selection" at the bottom of the page.
From there, just follow the OASYS system prompts.

INFORMAL CHEMISTRY EDUCATION: ENTHUSIASTIC EDUCATIONAL ENDEAVORS

Informal chemistry education refers to a broad range of opportunities that
provide learning experiences outside structured classroom settings.
Informal chemistry education contributes to the public understanding of
science and technology, introduces young people to the wonders of chemistry,
and offers continuing education for all ages. These learning opportunities
might include chemical demonstrations, community outreach, museum exhibits,
skits, games, science fiction, popular journals, educational websites,
television shows, etc.

The goal of this symposium is to provide a forum for individuals to describe
or demonstrate how they have used informal chemistry education opportunities
to enhance the understanding of science and technology and to assess how
these activities have impacted their target audiences.
