A Chemistry Conference in the time of COVID-19 - It's clean, it's green and it's on screen
Macquarie University is proud to host the Science Teachers Association NSW 2020 K-12 Chemistry Conference. It’s bringing real-world science to the classroom, to inspire the next generation of environmental science warriors. The Online Conference, which kicks off on September 14, will be opened by Executive Dean of the Faculty of Science and Engineering, Professor Magnus Nydén.
“Conference Delegates will hear the latest research from Macquarie University about tackling the issues of plastic pollution, climate change and sustainability”, says Professor Nydén.
Conference Convenor Oriana Miano says, “It’s an honour to be working with some great thought leaders at Macquarie University for this year’s chemistry conference, which will focus on tackling the big questions facing our society today. How do we apply what we know of chemistry to ensure a sustainable future?”
“We wanted to use the UN Sustainable Development Goals to frame the program for this conference so that teachers could be exposed to some of the latest innovations in green chemistry and hear from colleagues how to take this back to the classroom”, says Ms Miano.
