This is the 3rd in a series of annual workshops on Molecular Conduction. The prior workshops have been at Purdue University, W. Lafayette, IN (2003) and Nothwestern University, Evanston, IL (2004). The workshop has been an informal and open venue for discussing new results, key challenges, and unexplained phenomena.

AHard Day in the Life of a Soft Cell With every beat of the heart, inflation of the lung, or peristalsis of the gut, cell types of diverse function are subjected to substantial stretch. But what physical laws govern the abilities of the cytoskeleton to deform, contract, and remodel at the nanoscale? New data support the idea that the cytoskeleton is at once a crowded chemical space and a fragile soft material in which the effects of biochemistry, molecular crowding, and physical forces are …

In this lecture, we describe the basics of what quantum dots are and how they can be applied to thin film photovoltaic technologies. In particular, we examine the unique properties of quantum dot materials and how these properties can be exploited by scientists and engineers to yield low-cost, light-weight solar modules capable of converting sunlight into electricity in a direct fashion.  Additionally, the basics of solar cell characterization and light absorption are detailed and related to the band gap of quantum dot materials.  Finally, the potential impact of solar technologies on the energy landscape of the United States is discussed.

These are step-by-step instructions for creating simulations of carbon nanostructures: – buckly ball – carbon nanotubes – graphene sheets

These instructions will allow teachers to run simulations that students can use along with, or instead of, building 3D models of structures.

ICME 2008 NAP Report

Authors: Committee on Integrated Computational Materials Engineering, National Research Council

Description:  Integrated computational materials engineering (ICME) is an emerging discipline that can accelerate materials development and unify design and manufacturing. Developing ICME is a grand challenge that could provide significant economic benefit. To help develop a strategy for development of this new technology area, DOE and DoD asked the NRC to explore its benefits and promises, including the benefits of a comprehensive ICME capability; to establish a strategy for development and maintenance of an ICME infrastructure, and to make recommendations about how best to meet these opportunities. This book provides a vision for ICME, a review of case studies and lessons learned, an analysis of technological barriers, and an evaluation of ways to overcome cultural and organizational challenges to develop the discipline.

This report is available as a free download from the National Academies Press.

Communicating Science Course at UC Berkeley - Lawrence Hall of Science

On this website you will find detailed information about presenting Communicating Science, as a semester-long, college science education course, preparing participants to provide highly engaging science lessons for young students. The course syllabus is comprised of nine two-hour sessions on the following key educational topics

  1. Nature and Practices of Science
  2. Teaching and Learning
  3. Constructing Understanding
  4. Questioning Strategies
  5. Questions Lab
  6. Promoting Discussion
  7. Classroom Conversations
  8. Designing a Lesson
  9. Assessing for Learning

Educational Initiatives Award

In 2005, Communicating Science won UC Berkeley’s Educational Initiatives Award for its innovative design and is now widely recognized as a model for combining theory and practice to promote effective teaching strategies for improving science literacy. Communicating Science, and similar courses based on it, Communicating Ocean Sciences and Communicating Ocean Sciences to Informal Audiences are currently being taught at over 25 colleges and universities nationwide. Various combinations of sessions from the course have also been implemented in hundreds of teacher workshops and institutes, both nationally and internationally.
