Chemistry Experiences and Experiments for Learning

Designed for 7th-12th grade chemistry teachers.

Teachers will work with a set of chemistry experiences and experiments that can foster student learning and expand high-leverage, core teaching practices in chemistry. These chemistry experiences have been designed and vetted by the Stanford University Department of Chemistry in conjunction with high school chemistry teachers and science educators. The experiences will provide opportunities for participants to make strong connections with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and Common Core State Standards. Chemistry content and teaching practices will be tightly integrated around key chemical phenomena and concepts.

Participants will develop a plan for their own classrooms that uses these experiences, experiments, and core teaching practices to address the science learning goals in the NGSS and Common Core State Standards. Follow-up days during the academic year will enhance learning through additional instruction, collaborative feedback, and personal continued reflection on effective teaching practice in chemistry.

Please note that this is an application-based professional learning experience where participants form a cohort and become part of a larger ChemEx2 alumni network. Click "Apply" to learn more about the application process.

Partial scholarships are available.  Please contact Tammy Wu Moriarty at for more information.
