Teaching Modules

Community & Outreach, Chemical Engineering

Our department maintains a strong outreach program. We offer many teaching modules for in-class demonstrations and hands-on learning experiences. Contact us to have one of our outreach teams visit your classroom.

IMPORTANT!!! Some of the equipment and procedures needed to implement these modules may pose a serious threat to health and safety. Under no circumstances should an unsupervised minor perform the procedures described herein. All teaching modules should be supervised by an adult who is completely familiar with and takes full responsibility for the possible hazards.
