This summer forum on science and society deals with the role of chemistry in our daily lives and with the impact of chemistry on advancing the human condition and assuring the quality of life locally and globally. Selected topics in the fundamentals of chemistry, including chemical composition, structure of molecules, bonding, properties, and reactivity will be introduced. Special emphases will be placed on water quality, atmospheric chemistry, and general energy concepts and principles. An essential part of the course will be engaging chemistry demonstrations and some hands-on activities. Invited speakers from selected areas of specialization will provide a rich perspective on the topics to be discussed. Chemistry 107 is not intended for students who expect to take additional chemistry courses and it does not satisfy any prerequisites for further chemistry courses. Pre-Reqs: No previous chemistry required. Open to the general public for learners of all ages above the age of 17.
