The 74th Summer Conference of The New England Association of Chemistry Teachers will take place at Stonehill College, Easton, MA, from August 5-8. The theme, "It's All Atomic," encompasses a broad range - from periodicity, through history and every imaginable overlap of chemistry concepts. Now is the time to plan that part of Summer 2013 and to invite colleagues, students, and future teachers to join us at the beautiful Stonehill campus!
 
 
 
Some of this summer's relevant workshops include:

  • Harvard-Smithsonian / Annenberg Learner series - Videos and materials from the free, online course, "Chemistry:  Challenges & Solutions, " a 13-unit course for AP through 1st and 2nd year college set to become available this fall.
  • Lab-Aids -  display of equipment and supplies, and a workshop, too
  • Effective use of technology -  iTunes, iPad, devices and resources for learning
  • A fortuitous intersection:  "The Periodic Table, Glenn Seaborg, and Me"  
  • Take-a-ways -  free materials, chemistry mementos, prizes
  • “Behind the Scenes at MIT” Meet researchers, learn about their projects, attraction to chemistry, and how to use their videos to enhance concepts you teach.
  • Panel Discussion:  “How do you teach Atomic Theory?”
