This project investigated teaching techniques of organic chemistry. A general overview of science and chemistry teaching methods is discussed in this report. This project comprised of designing and testing a hands-on approach to teaching introductory organic chemistry, involving concept-related laboratories. Working with St. Croix Country Day School (CDS), located on St. Croix, US Virgin Islands, this approach was explored with 11th and 12th grade students. We encountered many obstacles in our project. However, it was successful.
