Editor’s Note: States of Matterby: Chris Ohana

Journal ArticleDigital resources are stored online in your NSTA Library.

Chemicals are “bad.” Chemists are a nerdy set in the same category as those zany physicists, except that chemists work with more dangerous materials—“chemicals.” A change in attitude is necessary. It really is a “matter” of considerable importance to citizens and our abilities to make informed decisions as consumers and voters. Since chemistry is important and all around us—let this issue open your eyes to the possibilities and excitement within it!
