Coordinated the Chemistry 102 program from 1981 to 2006. Inevitably, this led to an interest in chemical demonstrations and the outreach presentation "Is It Chemistry or Magic?"
Research Interests & Areas
Jmol Development Professor Tom Newton, University of Southern Maine, and I maintain the Virtual Molecular Model Kit at chemagic.org. The kit is designed to be used as a lecture presentation tool and a student model kit for traditional molecular modeling experiments. Chemistry Outreach Professor Jim Webb and I are the caretakers of the chemistry outreach presentation, "Is It Chemistry of Magic?" This chemistry road show is in its fourth decade. My profile photo shows step two of the Magic Bottle Reaction. We’re still having fun!
