For this event, high school students are asked to imagine that they are living 25 years in the future and have been invited to write an article for ChemMatters, a magazine for high school students that focuses on the role of chemistry in everyday life. The subject of the article is: “Describe a recent breakthrough or innovation in chemistry (and/or its applications) that has improved the quality of people’s lives today.” To view a sample ChemMatters magazine visit: http://tinyurl.com/ybk9gl73.
In addition to the article, students are asked to design a cover for the magazine. The article must be written as if the student is living in the year 2043, looking back at innovations that have occurred since 2018. The innovation must fall into one of the following categories:
A few examples of areas where development is expected are: nanotechnology, energy efficiency, pollution prevention, green chemistry, sustainability, intelligent devices for sensing, proteomics, climate models, biopharmaceutical therapies, medical devices and/or implants and new energy sources.

Welcome to the Panama Rainforest Connection 2018!
In February, we will again present our live Rainforest Connection videoconferences from Panama. Involve your students in live conversations with rainforest researchers on Barro Colorado Island to discuss research methods, ecology, adaptations, technology, flora and fauna, animal behavior, and other NGSS-aligned topics. Sessions can be scheduled for Feb. 16, 20-23, 26-28 or Mar. 1 and 2. Reserve an interactive videoconference soon, since timeslots are limited. Private, single-class sessions, from grades K-12 are recommended (no assembly programs). The cost is a fee of $150 for each 40-minute session, payable after the session.
Follow this link to reveal a world of information about our sessions!!!!!
Clicking on "Panama Topics," will get you to a list of topics which may be available, depending on the researchers who will be on the island on your date. Let us know by email your first 3 choices of topics and dates/times, so that we can plan with you.
Please reply to my email address: firstname.lastname@example.org or contact me at 973-655-7753 should you have any questions or concerns about our program.
See you in the Rainforest,
