Drs Lynch (PI), Padgett, MacGowan, Smith, Hizer, Nivens and Werner in the chemistry program have recently received $192,535 from the National Science Foundation. The grant, "Guiding General Chemistry Laboratory Toward a Green Revolution: An Inquiry Approach", NSF CCLI — 0942047, will infuse POGIL, guided inquiry principles into the general chemistry laboratory starting Fall of 2010. This 2 year project will provide support for the development of a series of green themed guided inquiry projects into chemistry I & II labs to improve student performance, understanding and interest in chemistry. The experience will end in an undergraduate research experience for every student enrolled in chemistry II by the spring semester of 2011.
