Chemistry on The Green


Shelby Hatch

Meeting Info

Allison Residential Comm 1021: Tues, Thurs 11:00AM - 12:20PM

Overview of class

In earlier times, "The Green" referred to a literal green space in the center of a town or village where residents would gather for public events. These events might be social or political in nature. In current parlance, we often use the word "green" to refer to something environmentally benign, and this includes the practice of "green chemistry." In this course, we will blend these dualities of "green" by communicating chemistry on the metaphorical green through essays, podcasts, 1-minute documentaries, and presentations. The course will culminate with a "Chemistry on the Green" event on campus.

Class Materials (Required)

A "green" notebook; can be made with recycled paper and/or repurposed from a previous course.

Class Materials (Suggested)

All reading materials will be freely accessible through Northwestern.
