National Group Launched for Chemistry Teachers
The American Association of Chemistry Teachers, which is billing itself as the "first national chemistry association for K-12 teachers," is officially up and running.
The group, founded by the American Chemical Society, will host webinars, conferences, and other professional-development opportunities, and will offer lesson plans, activities, and videos on its website. For a $50 membership fee, educators also get print and online journal subscriptions, as well as access to additional members-only resources.
Adam M. Boyd, who worked in the ACS education division for eight years, will serve as the program director. The group is still building its governing board.
