Educators and students now have access to rich internet resources of information. RSC’s ChemSpider is a community resource of structure-based chemistry delivering data including chemical compound collections, reaction synthesis procedures, physicochemical property and various forms of spectral data. ChemSpider offers the opportunity for the community to participate in populating, annotating and curating the data on ChemSpider. We believe that ChemSpider offers an opportunity for educators and students to participate in the ongoing development of a rich resource for the chemistry community. This presentation will suggest some potential uses of the ChemSpider website in terms of integrating into lesson plans. We will also outline how students can expose their structure and reaction-based research work via the ChemSpider platform for the benefit of the community and their online scientific reputation.
