Last month, Dr. Sara Narayan gave a presentation at the Biennial Conference on Chemical Education at Grand Valley State University in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Her talk, "Interactive Digital Presenation of Chemistry Courses Using PREZI and Voice Thread as an Alternative to PowerPoint" highlighted some of the teaching methods that she uses when she teaches chemistry to our nursing students.



Chemistry senior, Stephen Dennis, is participating in a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) at Virginia Commenwealth University (VCU) this summer. Stephen is working in the “Practices and Perspectives” program which is designed to provide an experience that combines practical training in specific research techniques (practices) with activities designed to put the research into the context of larger goals of modern science and technology (perspectives). Stephen was excited to be chosen for this program and is having a great summer!

Chemistry major, Carli Castiglia, loved her first year at Stevenson. She enjoyed being able to meet many new people with very different backgrounds. She really enjoyed her freshman chemistry course.  “The best part was Mrs. Payne's friendliness and dedication to us as her students as well as the small size of the class that created a really close-knit group.”  For her end of year demonstration, Carli to color a picture using the properties of acids and based instead of a crayon or marker.

Biochemistry major, Courtney Aceto, plans to pursue a career in epidemiology and virology researching new vaccines. She had a great freshmen year. One of the highlights of the year was her Honors General Chemistry demonstration. Courtney used different salts (strontium, barium, sodium, etc.) to produce different colored frames. What a pretty end to a great year in Freshman Honors Chemistry!

Congratulations to Chemistry faculty member, Dr. Jason Sonnenberg, on winning the 2014 Innovative Teaching with Technology Award for the School of the Sciences. This award recognizes faculty who use technology in new ways to improve or advance teaching and learning at Stevenson University.  Dr. Sonnenberg is an avid user of blackboards and whiteboards in his classroom. He uses available digital cameras to photograph all content placed on the board during class and digitally disseminates it to his students. This information is then readily available to students for studying.
