Batting around ideas..

My process thus far..

Final

 

If the fine print is not clear my solutions are as follows:

Small scale: Scientific paper instructing students on how to convert general chemistry lab experiments into green experiments. The document would be tagged in major databases, such as the Journal of Chemical Education. It would therefore be utilized by TAs and self guided students.

Large scale: Donate a green chemistry lab. The lab would be stocked with green chemicals and solvents. In high traffic sections of the lab such as the sink, hood, and glassware shelves would be covered in information of about staying green throughout the experiments. It might also include the splash trays discussed in class, which also hold information about staying green.

These images are my final solution, small scale. As well as my sketches from the previous week that didn’t want to post before. Hopefully. (:

It’s alright. More to come!

and my potential question is: How might we encourage the implementation of green chemistry in the laboratory?

As I continue to research I hope to narrow this down to a specific laboratory audience i.e. the general chemistry lab, the high school chemistry lab, etc.

Green Chemistry

I really enjoyed the articles this week! In particular, I found Gestalt’s principles interesting. More so the debate associated with them regarding perspective. That bit about the validity of perspective literally blew my mind. I love questioning things like perspective and reality. I also liked visiting the basic design principles. I don’t think I’ve seen those since my middle school art class, and certainly not to that extent. 

For our upcoming project I have decided to research green chemistry.

When I think of chemistry, the only negative association that comes to mind is endless lab reports and excruciating details. The positive aspects are much more apparent. Chemistry is intellectual… it’s reformation… it’s an explanation… it’s a catalyst in societal progress… all of these things. However, amid these wonderful things, chemistry is also destructive. Hazardous chemicals pollute our environment extensively. Fortunately, there is another great thing about chemistry to counteract this: chemistry is innovative. This innovation is demonstrated through green chemistry. A type of chemistry that promotes the use of reactants in lower concentration and toxicity by means of preventing harmful waste, rather than simply treating waste. In addition, green chemistry aims to be more cost effective. These are just a few of the underlying principles of green chemistry.

The implementation of green chemistry is necessary for the advancement of our education, as well as a clean and healthy planet!

The concept of green chemistry extends to green engineering. I may incorporate this angle as well.
