Experiments with Elements Ages: 6-10 Tuesdays 11:00-11:55am This semester, students learn about the periodic table and how it is organized, practice using lab tools to measure volume and mass, and conduct simple chemistry experiments to learn about specific elements and their properties. (Yes, even little kids can learn about the periodic table!) Each week we explore a new element and/or lab technique through hands-on activities. Course fee: $240. Maximum of 15 students.
Data Analysis and Presentation Ages: 11+ Tuesdays 12:30-1:25pm Students learn the basics of analyzing scientific data, from good experimental design and creating data files in Excel (or other spreadsheet software), to using basic statistical analysis and creating appropriate tables and figures. Students practice writing lab reports, learn to create scientific presentations in Powerpoint or similar software) and practice presenting scientific results to an audience. Students will need a laptop or tablet with spreadsheet (Excel, Numbers, etc.) and presentation creation software (Powerpoint or similar) during class. Instructor: Tonya Shearer, PhD Course fee: $240.
