The Green Chemistry in Education Workshop is for educators in the chemical sciences interested in incorporating green or sustainable chemistry concepts into the organic chemistry curriculum and laboratory. This five-day workshop held on the University of Oregon campus will be a combination of lectures, discussion, and hands-on time in the laboratory. Leaders in the field will address the need for green chemistry in the undergraduate curriculum and provide strategies for designing, adapting and incorporating new green experiments into existing organic chemistry curricula. The primary goal for this workshop is establishing a network of chemical educators who are promoting green chemistry and increasing the number of educators who incorporate green chemistry experiments and concepts into their teaching.
