Periodic Table Board Game

During our “Periodic Table and Periodicity" unit, we take about 3 days to learn the content and another 3-4 days to practice the content (more for Chemistry 1, less for Honors). One way that I have my students review the content is by playing a board game that I recreated from an NSTA conference a few years ago.

The Intersection of Art and Chemistry

Last year I came across a link on Twitter regarding an art installation by Roger Hiorns in England titled “Seizure.” Some of you may have seen it too – a condemned flat in London was essentially sealed off and filled with more than 75,000 L of supersaturated copper sulfate solution.

Hach Grant

I teach AP chemistry and general chemistry at Hudsonville High School in the Grand Rapids area.  I applied for the HACH grant last spring and was very excited when I was one of the recipients that was accepted.  The process of applying is very easy.
