E-Learning Version of "Pesticides/Insecticides and Chemicals"; the Forth Booklet for Understanding the Chemicals Surrounding Us

January 15, 2008

The Ministry of the Environment (MOE) has just developed an e-learning version of "Pesticides/Insecticides and Chemicals," the forth booklet for understanding the chemicals surrounding us.

The MOE has issued a series of booklets to help citizens, including children, to understand the chemicals surrounding them. These booklets are designed to provide them with opportunities to consider the connection between their daily lives and chemicals released from their own homes and vehicles.

The MOE has also developed e-learning versions of these booklets, aiming to enable citizens to learn about chemicals more effectively with the help of sounds and animations on the internet.

The MOE will continue to issue new volumes in the series, both in booklets and online versions.
