##### "What should my chemistry students know before they get to college?"
Are you a high school chemistry teacher? Thanks to the efforts of Prof. Hannah Starr and graduate students Hailey Hiatt and Caroline Sorrells, Superheroes of Science has created a playlist with the goals to both make chemistry more accessible and help prepare students for Purdue University collegiate level chemistry. Videos include step-by-step guides for solving general chemistry problems.
