VAST Chemistry Page! 

Welcome to the VAST Chemistry webpage

It has been over a year since this page was launched.  It is my plan to develop this page so it can be a source of information for Chemistry teachers.

The 2018 VAST PDI in Williamsburg, Virginia was a huge success and I am glad to report that there has been an increase in the number Chemistry presentations.  Again thank you to all the Chemistry presenters and to everyone who attended these presentations.  I hope to see even more of you presenting next year when we meet in Roanoke, VA.

If you look in the lower right hand corner of this page you will see that I have posted the pdf version of my presentations for the 2017 PDI.  I am working on posting the PDF version from all the Chemistry presenters to this website for easy access for all.  

 Keep checking back for regular updates.
