ChemEd X 2022 Reader Survey

Our ChemEd X team is looking for feedback from readers to assist in planning future content and professional development for our ChemEd X community. Our goal is to provide you with meaningful and quality content that best fits your needs. 

Colourful Chemistry of Canning

Educators may be able to use these anthocyanin experiments to make a connection between the food we eat and the chemical principles that are employed to ensure that canned foodstuffs can be preserved properly.

ChemEd X Talk: Using a Digital Interactive Notebook in the Chemistry Classroom

Digital notebooking is a dynamic process that integrates different learning experiences to challenge and reinforce student understanding. This method actively engages students in a manner that encourages discussion and collaboration. We hope you will join us on July 14th at 8pm EST to learn how Sarah English uses digital notebooks with her students. 

Seawater Chemistry and Global Trade: Part 4

Continuation of the practical application of chemistry to seemingly something unrelated- global maritime trade. In this classroom activity students predict the buoyancy (and hence stability) of a merchant cargo ship based on interpretation of seawater surface salinity values. Like in the first three posts, the question types are conceptual.
