CHEM 241 & 242: Informal Science Education for Elementary School Students

A service-learning course that will focus on pedagogical methods in science education for elementary school-aged children. Students in the course design age-appropriate lessons and activities for children. In the service component, course participants will be leaders of after-school science clubs in the Middletown elementary schools. Each semester, the course hosts Science Saturday, a day of hands-on science activities held in the Wesleyan science labs for children in the community.
