You are invited to the “Chemistry of Color in Art” event that Don Warner (Chemistry), Dan Scott (chair of Art Department), and I (Lisa Warner, Chemistry) will be holding November 7th from 6-8pm in the Center for the Visual Arts, Room 439.

The aim of the workshop is to provide situational and tactile exposure to chemistry and science through the lens of art. This event is intended to bring together members of the community at large, high school art and science teachers, chemists affiliated with the American Chemical Society, and university students, faculty, and staff. Participants will prepare pigments in teams of 4 and use their synthesized pigments to create their own works of art. Volunteers include undergraduate and graduate students from Art, Chemistry and Biochemistry, and the Biomolecular Science Program. We hope that this format will encourage conversation and shared experiences that can cross disciplines and perceived boundaries, and bring people together in an inclusive and fun environment.

The official event will be held Thursday, November 7th from 6-8 pm. A preview event on Sunday, October 27th from 3-5pm, is also available for attendance.

Please share this information with anyone you think would be interested. And feel free to contact me with any questions.

We really hope you are able to attend!

[10/11/16]   Charles “Butch” Atwood from the University of Utah will be giving a Chemical Education Seminar this Friday at 1:30 PM in the Education Building Room #112 at Boise State University. The title of his presentation is “Improving the Bottom Quartile’s Performance: The Key to Higher Success Rates”. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Abstract:
Six-year graduation rates at the University of Utah (~60%) are among the lowest in the PAC 12 Conference. The University has decided that our success rates must improve. Unsurprisingly, CHEM 1210 and 1220 (general chemistry) were identified as major areas of concern. Clearly, one method to improve success rates is to make the course easier. We decided on a different route, make the course more challenging while improving the success rate. Over the last five years we made a concerted effort to identify what our problem areas were then to address each of them. After three years of effort, it became apparent that the bottom quartile of students was the determining factor to our overall success rate. Until those students improved we were doomed to fail. In this presentation I will show statistical methods and classroom solutions we have employed to raise our success rate from 62% to 86% in four years. Importantly, our bottom quartile of students now scores on average 50th percentile or slightly higher on nationally normed ACS exams.
