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!
