Conscientious Chemists - Advancing technology while still protecting the environment
Invention and technology advancements are an integral part of human nature. But some of our innovations have taken a toll on the Earth, and force us to ask the question, "How does humanity continue to develop and advance technology, while protecting its environment?"
The field of green chemistry is attempting to address that very question.
In Conscientious Chemists, we talk to folks working on this problem from many different perspectives - entrepreneurs, researchers and policy makers - to understand and explore how all the pieces fit together. Join us as Stacy, Christoph, Jared, Jason and others talk about what they are doing to drive innovation forward in this field while preserving the environment.
Suitable for students in grades 3 - 5 - Physical Science, Earth and Space Science - chemistry, sustainability
