Dear Elaheh Kashani-Amin,
Thanks for asking.  Yes, it would be acceptable to use Chimera (free version) to create images for your slides, providing that Chimera is credited for the images in these materials.

However, if you were going to use Chimera interactively as part of the paid educational sessions, your group would need to license the software as described here:

Best regards,

We need to prepare some pictures of proteins, ligand-receptor interaction, etc. for the slides. Can we use the Chimera software (free version) to prepare some pictures for the slides? Though, we won't use the tool, itself, for those educational sessions.
