Friday July 15th, 2011: Casey and Dr. Caran hosted 19 high school teachers and 1 high school senior from around the Commonwealth for an all day Chemistry Demonstration Workshop in JMU’s Chemistry and Physics Building. Attendees participated in hands on demonstration instruction, received advice on doing demonstrations safely and effectively from Dr. Tom DeVore (JMU Chem), learned demonstrations and possible variations on these demonstrations from peers, and enjoyed liquid nitrogen ice cream at the end of the day. Discussion about presentation styles, context and variations was encouraged.
