Lizzy and Shanna will do doing an all-star tag team poster presentation on April 10th starting at 4pm EDT. You can get more information here. They will be in Hall B…

Atomic Interactions published in J Chem Ed

We are really excited that our work on Atomic Interactions was recently published in the Journal of Chemical Education. Extra congratulations to our (now graduated) undergraduate researcher, Alec Shrode who is a coauthor. Check out this exciting work on the JCE website.

X-DBER 2021 – Catch us there

Deborah Herrington and Ryan Sweeder will be presenting on our work at the XDBER conference. Join our poster presentation at the conference on Wednesday March 3rd from 2:30-3:50pm EST. Find out more about the conference here https://scimath.unl.edu/x-dber/2021/

More new content!

We recently used the principles of this research project to create two new screencasts, one for Atomic Emissions at an atomic level and a second exploring the Photoelectric Effect. Both have been developed using the excellent simulations from PhET.

More resources available!

Given the needs of the educational community to use more online materials, we have made our in-progress assignments available on this site. You can now download the assignments for acids, equilibrium and gases. We will be looking to make these all available as online fill-in forms soon.

Cancelled presentations

In the time of COVID-19, it is unsurprising that our upcoming presentations have been cancelled. Unfortunately there will be no BCCE 2020. We have plans to present at the Fall ACS National Meeting, but we will see if that actually happens.

Upcoming presentations

Check out our upcoming presentations at the Spring 2020 ACS National Meeting in Philadelphia. Herrington and Sweeder will be presenting (CHED 183) Sunday from 6-8pm in the poster session! Our student will be presenting in the undergraduate poster session. Attending the CSC in May? Herrington will be presenting an overview of our work in Vancouver….

Findings to date

If you want to know more about the outcomes of the research, here is a great place to start. As the site gets more developed we will hopefully add in the highlights from our findings to individual pages. Deborah G. Herrington, Ryan D. Sweeder, Jessica R.
