Issue-Oriented Science Using CEPUP.
California Univ., Berkeley. Lawrence Hall of Science.
CEPUP in the Schools is a project of the Chemical Education for Public Understanding Program (CEPUP) at the Lawrence Hall of Science, University of California-Berkeley. CEPUP is a diverse educational program highlighting chemicals and their uses in the context of societal issues, so that learners experience the reality of science. This booklet gives an overview of the available modules developed for this program. CEPUP in the Schools materials are directed toward students in middle/junior high and high schools. The modules contain equipment and supplies produced by Lab-Aids and printed matter published by Addison-Wesley. An activity overview and conceptual overview are given for the following modules: (1) "Chemical Survey & Solutions and Pollution"; (2) "Risk Comparison"; (3)"Determining Threshold Limits"; (4) "Investigating Groundwater: The Fruitvale Story"; (5) "Toxic Waste: A Teaching Simulation"; (6) "Plastics in Our Lives"; and (7) "Investigating Chemical Processes: Your Island Factory." The conceptual overview includes the chemistry concepts, processes, and societal issues covered in that particular module. The activity overview describes the activities that are part of the module. Ordering information and the prices for each module are provided. (KR)
