The Hazardous-Drums Project: A Multiweek Laboratory Exercise for General Chemistry Involving Environmental, Quality Control, and Cost Evaluation
Hayes, David; Widanski, Bozena
Journal of Chemical Education, v90 n4 p473-474 Apr 2013
A laboratory experiment is described that introduces students to "real-world" hazardous waste management issues chemists face. The students are required to define an analytical problem, choose a laboratory analysis method, investigate cost factors, consider quality-control issues, interpret the meaning of results, and provide management with an action plan for implementation. This lab gives instructors the opportunity to introduce problem-based laboratory teaching method with real-life applications.
