"Helping Students Connect the Macroscopic with the Symbolic and Sub-atomic Levels of Representation in Chemistry"

Presented by: Linda Cummings

Free PL for secondary teachers! 

Check out Peak Area Leadership in Science (PALS) https://sciencehubs.org to see the yearly schedule.  Each workshop includes networking opportunities, CEUs, door prizes and teacher materials.

  • Jan 21, 2023 (Sat) 8:00 am – 1 pm: Chemistry of Art and Color
    • Join us to take a closer look at the chemistry of art and color. Participants will learn about the history of paint pigments and the chemistry behind making pigments.  We will learn to analyze paint samples using a Scanning Electron Microscope and/or MALDI, an advanced mass spectrometry technique.  We will learn about art restoration, making crayons, and will make our own paint pigment. Like most of the Science HUB activities at the USAF Academy, we will make sure we have something for everyone, with emphasis on middle and high school teachers.  We will provide activities that (1) expand participants’ knowledge base; (2) provide the opportunity to do experiments that can be used in their classrooms, either as a demonstration or as a student lab; and (3) provide the opportunity to do experiments in a research-style environment using advanced equipment.  

  • Feb 4, 2023 (Sat) 8:00 am – 1 pm: Creating the Future: Genetic Engineering and Synthetic Biology
    • Through a mixture of presentations and hands-on activities by the United States Air Force Academy Biology department participants will be introduced to genetic engineering and synthetic biology.
