This laboratory course is designed for students in chemistry teaching combinations who wish to broaden their horizons in conducting experiments in the high school classroom. The course is loosely related to Experiments in Teaching Chemistry I - MC280C04, Experiments in Teaching Chemistry II - MC280C05, and Experiments in Teaching Chemistry Using Instruments - MC280C13.
Graduates of the course will be able to enrich basic chemistry teaching with non-traditional experiments, lead laboratory-oriented chemistry clubs, seminars and other electives.
Literature - Czech
