Program Management System - 21st BCCE - Molecular Simulations in the Chemistry Classroom: Using Off-the-Shelf Computers for More than Internet Access

Workshop Title: Molecular Simulations in the Chemistry Classroom: Using Off-the-Shelf Computers for More than Internet Access
Descrption: Making connections between macroscopic and molecular phenomena is the essence of learning chemistry. Molecular modeling can greatly help in making the connection in an effective and intuitive way. Technology has now advanced to a point where hundreds or even thousands of atoms can be handled easily with off-the-shelf computers, including student-owned laptops. As a consequence, simulations of “real” molecules and “real” samples of bulk matter are feasible on a routine basis. The workshop will show how to assemble microscopic samples of common chemicals with electronic building tools. In subsequent dynamic simulations, the physical and chemical behavior of these samples will be explored. The ability of the simulation approach to address student misconceptions and the inherent motivational value of dynamic simulations will be discussed.
