Curriculum

Introduction and proper instrument use

Example – vibrating string to explain resonance

Experimental design

How to set up experiments so that they actually answer the question you are asking

Free Radicals are Everywhere

Students bring samples to study

Spectral analysis

What do the squiggly lines tell us about our sample (A Lot!)

Use of automatic pipettes and laboratory microbalance

Students learn how to use this equipment for experiments

Setting up a serial dilution

Use laboratory techniques to perform a serial dilution

Concentration effects on magnetic resonance spectra

Use a stable free radical to study how electrons are affected by their environment

Research

Use what you know to ask new questions

Presentation

Preparing a poster presentation for a scientific conference
