Modeling, synthesis and characterization of a molecule or set of molecules across the nation. Collaboration Marie Barnes | added on May 25, 2010 Through the collaboration of Undergraduate, Graduate or Professors this project hopes to model a system with quantum mechanical principles, synthesize it with glassware techniques and characterize it with spectroscopy.
|Topic:||hands-on activities, synthesis, characterization, chemical modeling.||Audience:||post secondary students, graduate students, post graduate students and professors.|
Microscale Experiments in Environmental Chemistry Suggestion Shrivallabh Kamat | added on May 21, 2010 Environmental Chemistry experiments are designed to study atmospheric pollution by gases like CO2, oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and oxides of sulfur (SOx). The major sources of CO2, CO, (SOx) and (NOx) are the burning of fossil fuels by vehicles and industries.
|Topic:||air pollution, global warming, hands-on activities||Audience:||preschool children, college students, teachers|
Travelling Water Analysis Lab Suggestion Stephen Twa | added on May 18, 2010 Children analyze their water samples with simple equipment brought into the school by a chemist. Basic instruction and explanations also provided. Time: 2 hours.
|Topic:||water quality, hands-on activities||Audience:||school children|
Invitation to CNRS laboratories Suggestion Séverine Martrenchard | added on May 12, 2010 The laboratories of CNRS will open their doors to the public.
|Topic:||visits, hands-on activities, workshops||Audience:||general public, school children, high schools, secondary schools|
Chemistry in developing countries Discussion Fastino Madzima | added on Mar 24, 2010 most developing countries, especially most African countries, they do not have proper scientific and technical support to develop their education and in-turn scientific environment properly: they lack some of the most important training tools such as training instruments and information exchange etc, how can we help them?
|Topic:||hands-on activities, science fair, seminars, science communication, workshops||Audience:||decision makers, professional chemists|
