The latest developments in microchemistry REPEATED - I04

Wednesday 4th January 2017

Location : Palmer, 109

Microscale chemistry: Low cost and quickly performed procedures to enhance students' chemistry experience in all parts of chemical education and add variety to your lessons.In the past I have shown visitors to ASE, Microscale chemistry techniques gathered from all around the world. These techniques are usually associated with providing hands-on experience for students starting chemistry education or learning the subject in schools with no laboratory facilities. Teachers often think it has no place in more advanced courses.In this talk with demonstrations, we can apply these simple techniques to challenge students'misunderstandings in how invisible particles interact with water molecules and each other. Chemistry is not magic! It is now easy to show on the bench that molten salts do conduct an electric current. A number of teachers both here and in the States have incorporated the procedures into a seamless lesson of theory, practical and inquiry.I will show you more advanced chemistry uses by preparing and investigating the reactions of "exotic"gaseous alkenes (e.g. propene). This procedure (a useful alternative to smelly cyclohexene) uses a novel technique with 3-way taps and syringes to collect gases initially collected over water. Also I will hydrogenate propene to propane. The phenomenon of paramagnetism in transition metal can be very rapidly shown in precipitates and complexes formed in droplets. Thin layer chromatography is really quick and easy at the micro level. Micro-titrations need not be acid/base, they can cover redox and complexometric reactions as well.By using webcams, USB microscopes or even your mobile phone, teachers and students can make videos for "flipping"or revision. The procedures are often so quick that they can be incorporated into lectures and lessons (even those not in a lab) and stunningly projected onto a large screen."In a little you can see a lot"

CANCELLED: New biology�new practicals REPEATED - T02

Thursday 5th January 2017

10:00 - 11:00

Location : -, -

Speakers

  1. CLEAPSS

Biology is advancing very rapidly and the new understanding is increasingly seen in everyday life. Each iteration of GCSE or A level therefore includes new aspects of molecular biology, physiology and ecology, to prompt students to learn the theory.However, students often find the new material difficult to grasp because it is so abstract. This workshop gives ideas for simple hands-on practicals that help students to understand the experimental basis for the modern Biology. As the practicals are investigative, the students can also make some discoveries of their own!!!After all, isn�t the 21st Century the "Age of Biology".

Physics for the 21st Century/new ways of �doing'old physics/physics 4 U - T46

Thursday 5th January 2017

14:00 - 15:00

Location : HumSS, Van Emden LT

Speakers

  1. CLEAPSS

Come to this session for a glimpse of some cutting edge educational physics which you can do for yourself, and won�t cost the Earth� On display will be how to implement Raspberry Pi�s/Arduinos in the Physics classroom and the many uses of other technologies (for data logging and motion tracking) within the curriculum, our homemade electronic cloud chamber, how to make a multi-purpose laser (and what to do with it), amongst a whole lot more.
