W23: Designing Companion Computational Exercises to Enrich Traditional 'Wet' Labs

Have you ever wanted a computational module as part of one of your existing experimental labs? Students often have a disconnect between the macroscopic observations in the "wet" lab and what is happening at the microscopic, particulate level. We have found over the past 15 years that a student's experience in physical chemistry lab is significantly enriched by pairing related computational and experimental laboratories. In this workshop we will discuss strategies for designing such laboratories for not only physical, but also general, organic, inorganic, and biochemistry labs. We encourage participants to contact us ahead of time with specific experimental labs that could benefit from a computational component. During this workshop you will work with several computational chemistry experts to design your own computational lab.
