Petra van Koppen directs CenSURF Fellows in outreach programs to schools and the community. For example CenSURF is developing inquiry-based modules focused on sustainable chemistry for elementary students, and will provide teachers with kits with materials needed for classroom activities. We will collaborate with other outreach programs in a professional development workshop for K-12 teachers and provide follow up support. These CenSURF outreach and education activities will be posted on a web-site based database to reach a larger audience.
