Connecting Industry to K-12 Education through Green Chemistry

Rachel Pokrandt, Beyond Benign, Woburn, MA

Strategies and success stories around creating partnerships and initiatives between business and K-12 school communities will be discussed in this presentation. Local school communities including students, teachers, administrators and parents can be wonderful avenues to increase the reach of an industrial green chemistry initiative. Strategies and resources will be discussed and shared with a view to getting industry personnel out into school communities to share green chemistry initiatives and connect with the green chemistry leaders of the future.
