It has been a busy summer, and fall semester is now looming ahead. We are excited about the upcoming General Chemistry Symposium in March 2014. We already have lined up several guest speakers, and we are planning many workshops and talks. More to come later!! We are still working on the newsletter from the last symposium and hope to have it out by the end of August. The Chemistry Olympiad will be held again at CSU in March. We hope to see more schools and home schooled students participate in the next olympiad. We plan to relax for the next few weeks (while working on the newsletter) and then it will be back to work!! We are excited to start a brand new fall semester. Don’t forget the forum is open to all to discuss teaching challenges and anything else that relates to teaching.
