The laboratory portion of this course focuses on foundational principles and essential techniques of chemistry. These conceptual and technical tools have great relevance to many issues of importance to society, including climate change, human health, economic security, and more. SLS-related experiments in CHEM 1211K will be related to five threads of sustainability in chemistry: Green Chemistry, Chemistry and Society, Everyday Chemical Analysis, Computational Chemistry, and Climate Change. In CHEM 1211K you will have the opportunity to engage with big problems (Climate Change) and move the needle on the relationship of broader audiences to chemistry (Chemistry and Society).
