Bendall, Sophie; Birdsall-Wilson, Max; Jenkins, Rhodri; Chew, Y. M. John; Chuck, Christopher J. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2015
Chemical engineering is rarely encountered before higher-level education in the U.S. or in Europe, leaving prospective students unaware of what an applied chemistry or chemical engineering degree entails. In this lab experiment, we report the implementation of a three-day course to showcase chemical engineering principles for 16-17 year olds…

Enciso, P.; Luzuriaga, L.; Batasini, S. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
This laboratory practice is intended for undergraduate students of chemistry, physics, biology, and engineering, to illustrate the simple concepts behind dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs), and how basic chemistry can be translated into a practical application through the use of microcontrollers. Unlike commercial counterparts, one of the main…

Altarawneh, Mohammednoor; Dlugogorski, Bogdan – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
Due to the wide and the ever-increasing strategic applications of quantum chemistry in chemical industries, it is important to introduce chemical engineering students to illustrative case studies that deploy molecular modeling in the design of reactors and derivation of thermochemical functions. Herein, we demonstrate how quantum chemical…

Boesdorfer, Sarah B.; Staude, Kristin D. – School Science and Mathematics, 2016
Effective professional development that influences teachers' classroom practices starts with what teachers know, understand, and do in their classroom. The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) challenge teachers to make changes to their classroom; to help teachers make these changes, it is necessary to know what they are doing in their…

Lyle, Steven J.; Flaig, Robinson W.; Cordova, Kyle E.; Yaghi, Omar M. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
Rapid development in the field of reticular chemistry has allowed scientists ever-increasing control over the design and synthesis of crystalline porous materials. The promise that this field has in the development of next-generation materials for numerous applications (gas storage and separation, catalysis, chemical sensing, electronics) relies…

McDowell, Linda D. – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The goal of this review is to identify studies of self-regulated learning of students taking introductory physical science (chemistry, physics, and engineering) courses in college. This study analysed research in self-regulated learning published between the years of 2008-2018 with a focus on undergraduate learners in chemistry, physics, and…

Posselt, Julie; Porter, Kamaria B.; Kamimura, Aurora – American Journal of Education, 2018
Despite gains in baccalaureate and master's degree attainment, women continue to earn lower shares of doctor of philosophy degrees (PhDs) in many fields, a pattern that is often pronounced in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). This article uses comparative case study to understand organizational trajectories toward gender parity…

González-Sánchez, María-Isabel; Gómez-Monedero, Beatriz; Agrisuelas, Jerónimo; Valero, Edelmira – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
A laboratory experiment in which students recycle silver and platinum selectively from spent screen-printed platinum electrodes is described. The recovered silver in solution is used to show its spontaneous redox reaction with a copper sheet. The recovered platinum is electrodeposited onto a screen-printed carbon electrode to develop a sensor for…

Patall, Erika A.; Steingut, Rebecca R.; Freeman, Jen L.; Pituch, Keenan A.; Vasquez, Ariana C. – Science Education, 2018
Women remain underrepresented in physical science, engineering, and computer science college majors and careers. Prior research has suggested that motivational beliefs and experiences in high school play a critical role in girls' persistence in science fields. We hypothesized that compared to male students, female high school students may…

Hesser, Tiffany L.; Gregory, Jess L. – Higher Education Studies, 2015
It is not uncommon for students to find themselves underprepared when entering a post secondary institution. In additional to lower levels of academic achievement, underprepared students may not be aware that they lack the skills needed to be successful and effectively acquire and process information. Because of this, students that enter…

Higgins, Thomas B.; Beck-Winchatz, Bernhard; Davis, Michael; Kruger, Andrew – Scholarship and Practice of Undergraduate Research, 2018
The authors describe an undergraduate research program at the City Colleges of Chicago (CCC) organized around high-altitude ballooning and carried out primarily in an open, maker-space environment. Two cohorts of students were recruited. They undertook projects in biology, chemistry, engineering, environmental science, and physics. Via the…

Guedens, Wanda J.; Reynders, Monique – Journal of Chemical Education, 2017
Prior to the recycling process, raising awareness of plastic waste impact, e.g., polluting oceans worldwide, is undoubtedly a first attempt to tackle this pandemic environmental issue. With this in mind, the presented practical session is an effort to entice an interdisciplinary audience of science undergraduates toward a sustainable future. The…

Flowers, Jim – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
As a resource for manufacturing and construction, wood has much to offer: it is renewable, beautiful, locally obtainable, and rather easy to machine. In addition to building products out of wood, wood can be scientifically studied in the classroom and lab. In the age of STEM integration, technology and engineering teachers can teach wood science,…
