Stringer, Elizabeth I.; Hendrix, Jasmine D.; Swortzel, Kirk A.; Williams, J. Byron; Schilling, M. Wes – Journal of Food Science Education, 2019
Historically, high school chemistry has been the predominate venue for the introduction of food science curriculum to students. With the current decline in chemistry as a required course for graduation, the possibility of exposure to food science in high school could equally decline. The purpose of this research was to determine if high school…

Wolski, Robert; Jagodzinski, Piotr – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
The rapid development of information and communication technologies has enabled the development of interfaces, which allow the recognition of the gestures and movements of the user. These interfaces, due to their affordable prices, are available to a wide range of users. They are called natural user interfaces (NUI). NUI are commonly used in game…

Srisawasdi, Niwat; Panjaburee, Patcharin – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
Many studies have used the potential of computer games to promote students' attitudes toward learning and increase their learning performance. A few studies have transformed scientific content into computer games or developed games with scientific content. In this paper, we employed students' common misconceptions of chemistry regarding the…

Njoki, Peter N. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
A laboratory experiment has been developed to illustrate the transformation of silver nanoparticles (Ag NPs) in water containing phosphate anions. The experiment, conducted by high school students, involved hands-on learning to synthesize and characterize Ag NPs via ultraviolet-visible (UV-vis) spectroscopy. This was followed by a UV-vis probe of…
