S57: Experiments We Do: Short Stories Edition

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Have you developed a new experiment, or modified an existing one in a novel way, which you believe has high educational value, is different, is cool, or is just plain fun?  Do you wish share your ideas with your Chem Ed colleagues, but don't think you need 15-20 minutes for a presentation?  This symposium allows you to present one or two laboratory experiments or activities in a 5-8 minute presentation for each.  Presenters can tell us why the lab was developed, why they think it is useful (why it is neat!), and the nuts-and-bolts of doing the experiment or activity.  Presentations will be grouped based on the laboratory class involved.  Presenters in this symposium can present one or two short talks that count as one under the BCCE's "Rule of Two".

Presider: Curtis Pulliam, Utica College
