The Eddleman Institute

The Roy Eddleman Institute for Interpretation and Education is the public outreach and education component of CHF. The institute brings chemistry to a broad audience through public programs, print and Web-based publications, and educational materials. The Institute also operates the Museum at CHF.

The institute’s mission is education: that is, to present and interpret CHF’s collections, intellectual assets, and materials to a variety of audiences, including teachers, students, researchers, the media, and the scientifically curious lay public. Its programs seek to devise novel ways to bring out the science in everyday life, using CHF’s peerless collections and the creativity of its staff.
