Chemistry in the Community (ChemCom) represents a major effort to enhance
science literacy through a high school chemistry course that emphasizes
chemistry's impact on society. Preliminary work on ChemCom began in 1980 with
the formation of a steering committee, staff, and groups of writing teams
consisting of high school, college, and university teachers, assisted by chemists
from industry and government. Developed by the American Chemical Society (
ACS) with financial ...

... Cheek (1992), Kumar (1998), Hurd (1997). Hurd coined the term "
technoscience" to both reflect the realities of science and technology in the
modern world and the need to better balance education about technology with
traditional sciences in K-12 instruction and curriculum. One example of an
approach in American curriculum which tries to reflect this more balanced
treatment is the Chemistry in the Community (CHEMCOM) Project of the
American Chemical Society which is now in ...

A number of science related curricula have been developed using a
problembased or context-based focus. Examples of this approach include
Biology: A Community Context (BioCom) and Chemistry in the Community (
CHEMCom) in the USA, Salters Chemistry in the UK and Chemie im Kontext in
Germany (DeJong, 2008). Context-based science education has considerable
overlap with many forms of the Science Technology and Society (S/T/S) teaching
approach (see also) (Yager, ...
