The Annenberg Learner Collection



Sample Program – Chemistry: Challenges and Solutions

Chemistry: Challenges and Solutions teaches concepts of general chemistry by presenting real challenges in energy production, materials development, biochemistry, and environmental protection. The course zeroes in on core topics taught in introductory chemistry, providing a strong foundation for learners to pursue further study in science, med- tech fields, or a liberal education. Videos include lab demonstrations of key laws and processes, interviews with research scientists and industrial chemists, and explanatory animations. An online text covers science history and major discoveries with clear explanations and graphics. Interactive labs provide hands-on simulations of chemical processes.
