Intermolecular Attractions: Not As Romantic As It Sounds

Intermolecular Attractions: Not As Romantic As It Sounds

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

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

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”.

Science Denial: What can you do about it?

Science Denial: What can you do about it?

Science matters! Scientific data and perspectives should help inform economic decisions, guide government policy, and improve health and security. Yet denial and politicization of science is everywhere. Coronavirus. Evolution. Climate change. Vaccination. GMOs. We will briefly review what science is and how it works, analyze the causes of science denial, and discuss what you can do about it.

Pandemics Triggered by Climate Change

Pandemics Triggered by Climate Change

Pandemics have (literally) plagued humans throughout history. Before there was airplane travel, it usually took a major environmental disruption to create the necessary conditions to allow for a global spread, and that disruption was often provided by a rapid change in climate. We will examine the environmental factors that helped trigger pandemics such as the 1918 Spanish Flu (La Nina), the 1820 Cholera outbreak (eruption of Mt. Tambora), and the 14th-century bubonic plague (start of the Little Ice Age).

Biosphere II: What makes a scientific failure?

Biosphere II: What makes a scientific failure?

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.
