Tao, Fujun; Garcia, Alma Valenzuela; Xiao, Ting; Zhang, Yuliang; Yin, Yansheng; Chen, Xiaobo – Journal of Chemical Education, 2020
Interfacial solar vapor generation has recently drawn much attention because of its high solar-to-vapor generation efficiency. Here we introduce the basic experimental procedures and analysis for undergraduates to perform such an experiment to catch up with the cutting-edge research wave. Interfacial solar vapor generation employs an interfacial…

Bazilio, Arianne A.; Kovarik, Michelle L.; Morrison, Janet F. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2022
Chemical solubility and equilibria are paramount for understanding everyday systems. Recent events have led to more interest by the general public in chemical equilibria that occur in drinking water systems. This presents a great opportunity to increase student interest and engagement in the more complicated aspects of chemical equilibria. Shiny…

Cha, Jeongho; Kan, Su-Yin; Chia, Poh Wai; Chia, Poh San – Asian Journal of University Education, 2022
One of the challenges that science teachers face is the lack of strategy/method to train students in data collection and developing analytical skills, which are pre-requisites to resolve socio-scientific problems and an important element in scientific literacy. In this activity, the SWOT analysis proposed by the Stanford Research Institute in the…

Aubrecht, Katherine B.; Padwa, Linda; Shen, Xiaoqi; Bazargan, Gloria – Journal of Chemical Education, 2015
We describe the content and organization of a series of day-long field trips to a university for high school students that connect chemistry content to issues of sustainability. The seven laboratory activities are in the areas of environmental degradation, energy production, and green chemistry. The laboratory procedures have been modified from…

Armstrong, David; Murck, Barbara; Poe¨, Judith C. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2021
A service learning course has been developed through which undergraduate science students create problem-based learning materials for use in high school science classes. Undergraduate students research active learning pedagogies with a specific focus on problem-based learning, create original materials to be used in grades 11 and 12 chemistry and…

Andrade, Natasha A.; McConnell, Laura L.; Torrents, Alba; Hapeman, Cathleen J. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2013
Fugacity and bioavailability can be used to facilitate students' understanding of potential environmental risks associated with toxic chemicals and, therefore, should be incorporated in environmental chemistry and science laboratories. Although the concept of concentration is easy to grasp, fugacity and bioavailability can be challenging…

Yu, Anne; Linden, Lilly E. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2022
A two-week exercise on the Flint, MI water crisis was developed for high school and undergraduate students in introductory chemistry courses. During the first week of the exercise, students learn the chemistry of lead contamination while reviewing concepts learned previously in the course. During the second week, the students participate in…

Purwanto, Agung; Rahmawati, Yuli; Rahmayanti, Novia; Mardiah, Alin; Amalia, Risky – Journal of Technology and Science Education, 2022
Students difficulty in relating chemistry concepts to everyday life leads to their inability to explore and developed skills needed, especially critical thinking. Therefore, this study aimed to develop students' critical thinking skills by integrating socio-critical and problem-oriented approaches to chemistry learning with environmental issues in…
