Only For Homeschoolers?

You may be wondering if the SEAChem2020 project is intended as a project only for secular homeschoolers.  If this concerns you, don’t worry.  We have a lot of other people in mind, too!

  • Traditional high school teachers:  Though SEAChem2020 is aimed at an audience with limited access to lab gear and little experience teaching chemistry, I think you’ll find that these resources will work just as well in a classroom.  Unlike some chemistry curricula, which assume that you have a great chemistry infrastructure at your disposal, this curriculum is designed with both safety and low cost in mind.  Why not give it a look?
  • Chemistry students:  This curricula contains everything you need to teach yourself chemistry.  Because you’ve already got a chemistry class, these resources can serve as a tutorial to help you understand what you’re seeing in class.
  • Religious homeschoolers:  I know there’s a lot of bad blood between secular and religious homeschoolers and I’m not even going to attempt to discuss these issues. I will, however, invite religious homeschooling families to review each lesson and see if part or all of them can be used to teach your children.  Because this is an open-source project, feel free to adapt these resources to meet your own needs.
  • Educational and scientific researcher-types:  Take a look at what we’ve done here and tell us what you think.  If you have comments, questions, or just want to get involved, we strongly encourage you to do so.

I think the strongest reason you should check these resources out is financial:  They don’t cost anything.  If you like these resources, just print them out and use them in whatever way you like.  If you don’t like them, they haven’t cost you a dime.  It’s always good to have options!
