Here it is. My first contributory post to the ChemEdX. My name is Dan Meyers and I am a chemistry teacher in Portage, MI which is south of Kalamazoo. The area is home to many science-related industries including Pfizer, Zoetis, Stryker, MPI Research, and the Southwest Michigan Innovation Center.

I am preparing to teach a "blended" chemistry course this fall and I admit that I am a little nervous. Students will be expected to access some of the course material outside of class. It will be very important that students preview materials and complete assignments.

Last full day of BCCE and what a day it was!  Started the day with an amazing plenary speaker, Holly Walter Kerby and her work with Fusion Science Theater.  She talked about the aspects of a good play and how to use that same idea when doing a demonstration.  This engages the learner, helps them focus on the concepts behind the demo, and gives them an active role in the experience.

Hi. If you're at the BCCE and considering talks for Thursday morning, please consider coming to my talk at 10:15 in MAK A1117 (Erin Wasserman). I will be talking generally about high school enrichment programs with a big focus on the practical side of how to set up and run a science research program. You'd be surprised at how an authentic research experience can imapct a young kid!

If you are like me and unable to attend BCCE 2014, there is still a way to be part of the action. Twitter! Even if you don't have a Twitter account, you can follow tweets from participants that are there "live tweeting" the action.
