#238 - Introducing Chemical Engineering to K-12 through Experimentation and Course Integration II (04002)
Decisions on majoring in engineering need to be made early in the K-12 system so that students can take appropriate math/science courses. This session will explore ways of introducing students and teachers in the K-12 system to chemical engineering principles. This exposure will assist in the selection of a major as well as improve the content of the K-12 math and science courses.
