It's easy being green: A project developed from the Green Chemistry in Education Workshop

After attending the Green Chemistry in Education Workshop in 2006, I redesigned the organic chemistry course sequence and introduced a larger outreach project. The organic chemistry laboratory sequence contains green laboratory activities, and the lecture course has integrated green chemistry throughout. This paper will discuss the planning and execution of these projects, as well as the main outcomes as a result. An ongoing service learning outreach component to the K-12 science teaching community will also be discussed.
