Looking for funds to attend professional development? I used an ACS Hach Grant to fund my travel to a conference last summer (2018).
I teach AP chemistry and general chemistry at Hudsonville High School in the Grand Rapids area. I applied for the HACH grant last spring and was very excited when I was one of the recipients that was accepted.
Chemistry teachers face many challenges. One of those challenges is providing our students with the equipment and resources they need to be successful. Many teachers find themselves in schools that cannot afford to properly outfit their chemistry courses. That is exactly the situation I found myself in as a new teacher.
