Teaching in Uganda

Posted 24 May 2012

Some great pictures of our models in action in Uganda sent by Jean Johnson, who runs courses for African chemistry teachers and students, funded by RSC. These teachers usually teach by dictation and have rarely done practical and never handled models. Jean instructs them to make models of ethene which they then squash so the bonds break and the students rejoin them to make polythene. The pictures of PVC include students from Sudan and Tanzania. Jean now has a big box of our models and is planning to extend what she teaches when she next travels to Africa. You can see more pictures on our facebook page. Please send any of your own photos which you would like to share to feedback@cochranes.co.uk
