Abstract Details (PID = P152)
Title:A Natural Approach to Chemistry: One in a Million (P152)
Description:How do we teach topics such as electron configurations so that high school students can learn and understand them? Walk away with some effective ways to teach the structure of the atom. Using a user-friendly spectrophotometer, explore how light interacts with dyes. Then use unique spectrum cards to show how atoms, color, and spectra are related, making a conceptual bridge between a core chemical technology - making dyes - and the fundamental structure of the atom.
