Malden Catholic recently hosted visiting chemistry educators from Beyond Benign to talk to students about the topic of "green chemistry."
Beyond Benign "develops and disseminates green chemistry and sustainable science educational resources that empower educators, students and the community at large to practice sustainability through chemistry," according to its website.
"We work directly with educators and a network of strategic partners focused on science education, sustainability, innovation and initiatives supporting human and environmental health to provide an educational continuum from K-12 higher education with an important community engagement component."
The two Beyond Benign visitors, Derrick Ward and Mollie Enright, spoke to MC STEM students and encouraged them to think more about sustainability through chemistry.
The after-school presentation saw a full classroom of Lancers who brought along pens and paper to take notes about how they can contribute to the sustainability of planet earth. We are grateful to our friends at Beyond Benign and to STEM Director Dr. Diane Perito for making this informative lecture possible!
