Green Chemistry Educators Aggregate ‘Treasure Trove’ of Free Learning Resources
An esteemed U.S. green chemistry education group has collected and posted a range of free online post-secondary teaching and learning resources to help boost the emerging field.
By aggregating the links, Beyond Benign, which develops and disseminates green chemistry and sustainable science educational resources, has created a treasure trove of resources from Yale University, the United Nations Industrial Development Organization, the Carnegie Mellon University Institute for Green Science, and more. The non-profit, founded in Massachusetts in 2007, made its name by producing the United States’ first green chemistry curriculum for middle and high schools, and has continued to advance its cause in classrooms throughout North America ever since.
