Teaching Chemistry in the Classroom without the Traditional Laboratory: "Outreach Chemistry."
Hiebert, Clyde
For various reasons, students do not have access to laboratory facilities and yet need courses in the laboratory sciences such as chemistry. This paper describes "Outreach Chemistry," a course developed to provide a chemistry laboratory experience for students attending schools that lack science laboratories. Designed for off-campus students whose work schedules make enrollment in laboratory courses taught on the main campus difficult, this course is taught in a regular classroom, while maintaining the same lecture material as the chemistry courses taught on main campus. The laboratory segment of the course is composed of 23 experiments that require minimal equipment. The management of the necessary equipment is described and the advantages and disadvantages of this method of teaching chemistry are discussed. A list of the 23 experiments is provided. (MDH)
