Applying Chemistry Concepts to Real-World Scenarios

Creating lesson plans that make students apply academic knowledge to real-world situations can be difficult. Fortunately, for today’s teachers there are websites like The Chem Collective that provide great ideas and resources for applying academic knowledge to real-life scenarios. The Chem Collective is a project designed by the Chemistry department at Carnegie Mellon University.

Applications for Education
The Chem Collective is designed for teachers and students at the high school and college level. The instructor page provides teachers with seven interactive activities requiring students to apply academic knowledge to a real-world scenario like detecting arsenic in drinking water. Teachers will also find on the instructor page tests, course modules, simulations, and virtual lab problems. The pages designed for students contain interactive tutorials, online simulations, and practice tests.
