The General Chemistry Symposium welcomed attendees with two days of informative talks and discussions as well as a social event the first evening with interesting posters, wine, and appetizers. There was a feeling of appreciation at CSU for providing this opportunity for those of us who are dedicated to the effective teaching of chemistry. We hope each year to expand the topics for presentation and discussion and to include teachers also in high schools and middle schools as well as parents of home school children. The main objective of the symposium is to present a forum to discuss the many different aspects and difficulties in teaching our subject. Let’s keep moving forward and upward in our endeavors to teach the subject effectively. Thanks to all that were in attendence. You made the symposium a success. We hope to see everyone next year.
