P519: Unwrapping the mysteries and controversies of food

Marta Gmurczyk (American Chemical Society, USA), Sally Mitchell (Syracuse University, USA), Patrice Pages (American Chemical Society, USA)

In this presentation, we will examine how ACS ChemMatters stories related to  food chemistry  can be used to help students understand basic chemistry concepts and enrich their ability to critically apply what they have learned to food they eat and prepare.  ChemMatters magazine is an award winning publication that presents articles about how science works in everyday life and is written for high school level students. Each article has an exhaustive amount of teacher support material, including tools to help students read technical material, understand what they read and apply it to what they know.
