The chemistry of learning


High school and middle school science teachers from the region are learning better ways to teach chemistry and science in a unique two-year Master of Chemistry Education program, a collaboration between the chemistry department, the Graduate School of Education and school districts in the region. MCE students Bill Schneider and Octavia Blount, who teach in Philadelphia public schools, were comparing the chemical composition of unknown substances to aspirin during a lab in November.
