Chemistry is the central science in the modern world. It subsumes all of molecular physics and molecular biology and the new areas of nanoscience and nanotechnology are actually subdisciplines of chemistry. Without a detailed understanding of chemistry at a fundamental level, today's biologists, physicists, material scientists, nanoscientists and many others would be able to do little worthwhile. This resource includes a variety of activities that focus on chemistry and chemical science in the modern world. All the material and activities have been compiled by Vanessa Kind, the Royal Society of Chemistry Teacher Fellow 2001-2002. This resource was produced as part of the Royal Society of Chemistry's programme for the support of education in the field of the chemical sciences. Providing contemporary material as a wide range of chemical topics particularly suitable for use with 14-16 year olds, this book and accompanying CD-ROM includes topics such as fireworks, health, beauty products, nanoscience, energy and clean fuels. Interactive student exercises and student worksheets are included.
