Ohio Northern University’s Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry is hosting a five-day workshop designed to provide high school chemistry teachers with a unique professional development opportunity.


The 30-hour workshop features lecture, laboratory and networking time:


• Use a Vernier spectrophotometer and Vernier probes

• Conduct associated laboratory exercises

• Modify and troubleshoot existing protocols

• Participate in discussion sessions

• Receive a Vernier instrument for use in your home educational institution

• Join specialized breakout seminar/laboratory periods


All teachers who teach at least one high school course in chemistry are invited to apply. Applications are due by March 1.


All accepted teachers will be awarded a $1,200 grant that will cover housing, registration fees, some meals and purchase of a Vernier scientific instrument. Some travel grants (up to $300) also are available.
