Advanced Quantum Chemistry tools are generally hard to use and cannot be used in a freshman teaching environment, where conceptual understanding rather than the teaching of cryptic tool languages is critical. The nanoHUB software development and deployment environment can overcome this handicap and a set of tools that can be used in the teaching of Freshman chemistry has been developed. Northwestern University has assembled a set of tools and homework for this purpose.
All freshman chemistry students at Northwestern (around 800 students) used nanoHUB this year for projects concerning QC-Lab, the Nanosphere Optics Lab and INDO/CNDO codes. These projects were done as part of the laboratory program (where the students actually get to mix chemicals together and make the nanoparticles that are being modeled by the computer codes). Introductory material is provided in the lecture part of the courses. This program is under the leadership of Prof. George Schatz and Dr. Marcelo Carignano, but is mostly implemented by Northwestern University staff that are not supported by NCN.
