New Monthly Webinars!

In order to bring you more methods for teaching chemistry, we are expanding our educator offerings this year! Beginning this month, we will host monthly webinars focused on the topics you’ve told us you’d like to learn more about, led by expert K-8 educators nationwide. Below are the first three webinars. Be sure to sign up for our newsletter to receive updates about upcoming events!


Our goal is to provide engaging, concise one-hour trainings that give you the strategies you need to feel confident and competent teaching science. 


Plus! All workshop participants will receive a certificate of completion, periodic table poster, an Activity Guide flash drive containing 50+ chemistry experiments, and other giveaways after attending.
