This page relates to a project for high school chemistry teachers. It is designed to aim at developing and offering graduate chemistry courses for high school teachers. The curriculum and testing for these courses is delivered entirely over the Web. These courses are intended for use in graduate programs and the National Science Foundation is currently providing tuition reimbursement. Interested parties can participate as either a teacher (taking course(s) as a student) or as a mentor (providing guidance and providing/judging credit).
Most undergraduate chemistry curricula involve a year of general chemistry followed by semester or year-long sequences in organic, inorganic, physical, analytical, and biochemistry. Some programs include computational chemistry. Environmental chemistry is sometimes offered but rarely included in the core mix.
