Workshops Offered for Spring 2017:
What is DNA fingerprinting? Students will learn how gel electrophoresis works and how it is used in fields like forensics to study DNA of various individuals.They will conduct an experiment to find out if different food dyes use the same colors.
How a Microscope Works
How does a microscope magnify an object? Students will learn about lenses, build their own microscopes, and calculate the magnification for it.
What is an isotope? Students will play an interactive game to learn the answer to this question and also find out how isotopes real-world applications make them useful to scientists.
Can we use light to measure the amount of a known chemical substance (concentrations)? Students will learn about absorption spectrophotometry by building a LEGO spectrophotometer. They will use it to analyze the amount of cranberry juice contained in a juice mix.
Way, way, way down at the nanoscale
What is nano? Get your students to better grasp the world of nano and how materials behave very differently on this scale with a few, simple hands-on activities. We will introduce a great resource for nanoscale education and present a set of related activities from the National Informal STEM Education Network (NISENET.org). Presented by Cornell Nanoscale Science and Technology Facility.
