Modeling a Sneeze: Kinematics in Pictures Speaker: Christopher Moore

Modeling a Sneeze: Kinematics in Pictures Speaker: Christopher Moore

Social distancing recommendations specify we keep at least 2 meters away from each other. Why? To answer this question, we’ll simulate and model the trajectory of particles in a sneeze. Using pictures and graphs, instead of blindly plugging numbers into equations, we’ll solve what is essentially a projectile problem. We’ll also learn about distributions while determining the average force and energy exerted during a sneeze.

Biosphere II: What makes a scientific failure?: Speaker: Obie Martin

Biosphere II: What makes a scientific failure?: Speaker: Obie Martin

Learn about our Biosphere I – The Earth – while engaging in the interesting tale of Biosphere II. Biosphere II didn’t meet the goals it set out to achieve, but was it a failure? Well, yes. But also, no! In this workshop, you’ll use hands-on learning, digital explorations, data analysis, and print resources to gather evidence and apply learning to form your own conclusions.

Intermolecular Attractions: Not As Romantic As It Sounds Speaker: Obie Martin

Intermolecular Attractions: Not As Romantic As It Sounds Speaker: Obie Martin

Let’s explore the intermolecular forces between covalent bonded molecules! It’ll be more fun than it sounds with hands-on and digital experiences to bring the subject to life. In the end, we’ll apply what we’ve learned to everyone’s favorite molecule, H20!

How Does Soap “Destroy” Coronaviruses?: Modeling Lipid Bilayers Speaker: Christopher Moore

How Does Soap “Destroy” Coronaviruses?: Modeling Lipid Bilayers Speaker: Christopher Moore

Just like the cells that make up our bodies, coronaviruses are surrounded by a membrane made up of phospholipid bilayers. This membrane is similar to a soap bubble, which consists of water sandwiched between little polar soap molecules. Using a bubble as a model, we’ll learn how washing your hands with soap and the alcohol from hand sanitizer can disrupt a coronavirus, essentially popping its “bubble”.
