The Chemistry Project bundle contains fifteen chemistry projects with a suggested rubric for grading each project. This product can be edited so you can customize the instructions for your class. My students and I have enjoyed exploring chemistry beyond the classroom. The Job Shadow project requires permission from an employer. My students that choose to do the project set up their job shadowing day during spring break. I remember one student that job shadowed with the fire department and followed an investigation of a potential arson case. He learned some real world chemistry and became a much better chemistry student. Projects are great for motivation.
Objectives: The students will:
1. evaluate the impact of research on scientific thought, society, and the environment
2. describe the connection between chemistry and future careers
3. research and describe the history of chemistry and contributions of scientists
