W45: Experiential Chemistry: A Hands-On Laboratory-Based Course for Non-Majors

Marc Richard, The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey
Jonathan Griffiths, The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey

This workshop will be a hands-on introduction to Experiential Chemistry, a course designed specifically for non-science majors.  The approach used in this course reverses the traditional pattern of science education where early mastery of factual material is required before the students are allowed to explore the interesting problems. Students are first presented with a series of exciting experiments and are allowed to experience the excitement of chemistry.   Unlike other non-majors course, Experiential Chemistry is taught exclusively in the laboratory, with no lecture component.  This workshop will give participants a chance to explore many of the experiences developed for the course and to discuss how the course is implemented. Copies of the course text will also be provided; 3-hour session.

Intended Audience: HS/UG

$50 fee; limit of 25 participants
