Michael Rose Awarded Funding For Outreach Program

CEC faculty member Michael Rose has been awarded funding for “H2 from H2O: A Water-Splitting Outreach Kit for High School Chemistry Students” from The Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation.

The new funding is to develop and expand the outreach program, which is designed to bring hands-on laboratory experience to local and regional high school chemistry classrooms, and to raise awareness about the important role played by chemists in developing sustainable sources of energy for the 21st century. Details about the program are available on Prof. Rose’s website

The Dreyfus Foundation Special Grant Program in the Chemical Sciences provides funding for innovative projects in any area consistent with the Foundation’s broad objective to advance the chemical sciences.
