Teaching laboratory courses online removes the immediate interaction and involvement of the students in authentic hands-on experimentation, and similar to the audience at a theater play, students may become passive observers. Regaining students’ active participation in online laboratories is similar to ‘breaking the fourth wall’ of a theater stage. Click on the image to read more.

Department Highlights

Congratulations to Justin Beltz, Chemistry Ph.D. candidate, for winning 1st place in the local 3 Minute Thesis (3MT) competition! The idea of 3MT is to give a three minute presentation on your research topic and explain its significance to a non-specialist audience.  Justin presented on "Eye drops for non-invasive prevention of cataracts."  As the 1st place winner, Justin will go on to the regional competition in Milwaukee, WI in the Spring of 2020.
