Green Chemistry & Engineering Conference
Beyond Benign is pleased to be participating in the ACS Green Chemistry Institute® Student Workshop at the 15th Annual Green Chemistry and Engineering Conference!
Conference Capstone Workshop for Students
This full-day, workshop is designed for students attending the GC&E conference. Undergraduates, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows are welcome. You must be registered for the GC&E conference and the workshop to attend. To register for the workshop, check the student workshop box on the conference registration form.
This student workshop is designed to take some of the lessons learned throughout the conference and put them into action. Learn why green chemistry education outreach is so valuable and how you can be a green chemistry ambassador at your school and in your community.
Stepping out from behind the lab bench to communicate your research in simple and meaningful ways is incredibly valuable. Green chemistry offers concrete solutions to many of the environmental challenges society faces. Inspiring the next generation of scientists is an excellent way to help create a sustainable tomorrow.
During this workshop you will hear from Beyond Benign staff members and current Beyond Benign Outreach Fellows from New England Colleges. Learn from the leading organization in green chemistry education and outreach how to engage and interact with audiences of all ages. This workshop promises to be an interactive and exciting experience.

Beyond Benign’s Outreach Fellowship Program
Through this program, Beyond Benign staff train college student fellows from Massachusetts colleges. The fellows then work with our staff of scientists and education specialists to bring green chemistry to K-12 students. Staff and fellows discuss green chemistry topics, careers in science and lead lab experiments and hands-on activities at over 40 classroom and school events to demonstrate sustainable solutions to scientific, environmental and social challenges.
College students inspire younger people to pursue studies in the sciences through our outreach mentoring program, while also raising awareness of environmental problems and environmentally benign solutions.
The fellows serve as ambassadors of green chemistry on a broader scale by helping to educate and inform the public on topics related to sustainability. Staff and fellows participate in over 20 community events annually throughout New England. By reaching out through activities based on real-world examples, we make science and sustainability relatable to everyone.
