Green Chemistry Camp

Let's Treat the Earth With Respect!

The goals of the “Green Chemistry Camp: Treat the Earth with Respect” activities are: 

Do you have a passion for the environment and a knack for chemistry? If your answer is yes, Green Chemistry day camp is for you!

Green chemistry is on the cutting edge of the industry - using chemistry to develop cleaner, safer, renewable energy sources. At this unique camp, students will gain a basic knowledge of green chemistry and sustainability in order to understand how the synthetic world of chemistry can interface with the natural world.

Campers will engage in hands-on experiments and in-depth discussions surrounding the role of chemistry in everyday life. They will learn the 12 principles of green chemistry: 

  • Prevent waste
  • Design Safer chemicals and products
  • Design less hazardous chemical syntheses
  • Use safer solvents/reaction conditions
  • Increase energy efficiency
  • Use renewable feedstocks
  • Design chemicals and products that degrade after use
  • Minimize the potential for accidents
  • Analyze in real time to prevent pollution
  • Use catalysts, not stoichiometric reagents
  • Maximize atom economy
  • Avoid chemical derivatives
