STANSW Chemistry Conference 2020
Theme : Green Chemistry
Where: Online in partnership with Macquarie University
When: Monday 14 September to Friday 25 September (3:30 - 5:30pm)
Who: 7-12 Chemistry and K-6 Primary Teachers
Our conference will explore Green Chemistry / Green Science through the lens of sustainability and investigating the suitability of natural and processed materials for a range of purposes.
The NSW Chemistry Syllabus engages with sustainability as the ongoing capacity of the earth to maintain all life. Teachers aim to support chemistry students to investigate relationships between systems and system components and consider the sustainability of food sources and the natural and human environments. Students are supported to engage with sustainability and green chemistry as a concept worthy of great debate and a commitment to solving ethical problems.
The Sustainable Development Goals proposed by the United Nations Development Programme, call us to action to work towards goals including:
- clean water and sanitation;
- affordable and clean energy;
- responsible consumption and production;
- life below water and climate action
With these goals influencing the school theme for National Science Week for 2020 "Deep Blue: innovations for the future of our oceans", this year's conference aims to contextualise Chemical World content in Stages 1 to 5 Science, as well as examine concepts covered in Stage 6 Chemistry through this lens. The aim is provide teachers with experiences to engage in professional learning which assists them to make real-world, relevant and authentic links in the classroom for their students.
A separate K-6 Primary program stream will be offered with a focus on Material World Strand integrating Digital Technologies
