Online Presentations (1-20 of 51)

  1. From Research to Learning in Chemistry through Visualization and Computation

    17 May 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Eric Jakobsson

    Modern chemistry research and high school chemistry education are separated by institutional and geographical boundaries. As such, much of secondary chemistry education is still based on the periodic table instead of the computational methods that drive current chemistry research. In this talk,...

  2. Functionalized Nanomaterials at the Interface of Biology and Technology

    24 Apr 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Dean Ho, National Center for Learning & Teaching in Nanosca

    Nanomaterials, such as block copolymeric membranes and nanodiamonds, can be engineered for a broad range of applications in energy and medicine. This presentation will highlight the relevance of these materials as foundations for device fabrication across the spectrum of biology and technology....
