Difficult Ideas in Chemistry REPEATED I05
Difficult ideas in Chemistry

Particles which do not change amidst change, burning which builds up oxides, the funny pH scale, reaction rates - how do we approach these difficult ideas?

  • We explore some of the barriers to understanding our chemical environment, starting with those particles which do not change even though things burn, grow, rot and evaporate around us.
  • Then we examine the process of burning which is a constructive process with energy stored in the fuel/oxygen system (no energy is stored in food or fuels!).
  • The gaseous oxides of combustion are acidic and the solid ashes are alkaline, but what is this strange pH scale?
  • And why do slow reactions get so much faster as the temperature rises – a 10 degree rise in temperature often doubles the rate? (Think of the time it takes milk to go sour – 8 days in the ‘fridge at 4 degrees, 4 days in a cool house at 14 degrees, 2 days in a warm house at 24 and a day at 34 degrees.)
My talk will be exemplified by reactions we see in everyday life, and I will suggest ideas for helping students understand the underlying chemistry.
Attached is a draft of the PowerPoint I will use - the final version will be available after the conference.
About Keith Ross
I started teaching science in school on VSO in India after a metallurgy degree at Oxford. After a year in industry I made teaching my career, first in secondary schools in Birmingham and Leicestershire, then for 3 years in Nigeria. I was deeply inspired by Clive Sutton during a Master's in Education at Leicester University and was involved with some of the early challenges made to the science national curriculum by Ros Driver and colleagues.
In1980 I moved to teacher education at what became the University of Gloucestershire at Cheltenham. I began by working with students from Africa on A level chemistry teaching. Later I became the science tutor for the GITEP post graduate secondary teacher education project and the book “Teaching Secondary Science” now in its 4th edition was the outcome. Today’s talk is based on chapter 14 - 'Difficult ideas in Chemistry'.
In 2007-8 I worked with primary teachers in a college of education in Pakistan, and more recently, retired and living in the South West of France, I have been helping to develop chemistry videos for Fuseschool.

Working Scientifically Outdoors I21
Children have an intrinsic need to play. They have inquisitive minds and like to manipulate, create and investigate.  Tapping in to this 'play' mindset we will use this as a way of helping children to connect and experiment with the world they live in.  This will be a 'hands on' session introducing a series of tried and tested ways of facilitating and enabling children to set up, carry out and record their own science enquiries, research and investigations in their own school grounds - even if it is a bit of a tarmac desert!  We will be working indoors and outdoors and getting stuck in so you can discuss how the activities might work with your pupils.

Year 7 & 8 Practical Experiment Showcase D16
Would you like hints and tips for curriculum focused practical work and advice from specialists on how to perform a range of science activities? All disciplines covered! Plus how can virtual enhancement augment and reinforce practical work?
ASE, in partnership with BESA (British Educational Suppliers Association) will be delivering an inspiring workshop aimed at Year 7 and 8 teachers and their science technicians. That is FREE to attend.
Focusing on the all-important practical work in the classroom, the experiments, which have been chosen by our Science Education 11-19 Committee and Science Laboratory Technicians Committee, in association with our Health and Safety Specialist Group, will be aimed to inspire and delight the students, so to foster a love of science, whilst giving teachers the confidence to perform the experiments safely.
Expert lab technicians will be on hand to answer questions, to show the experiments and to let you try your hand at them, whilst the suppliers will be there to give advice regarding equipment and chemicals with maybe cheeky little discounts especially for you!
To support practical work in schools, ASE and BESA are funding teachers to attend this workshop free. Just register for 'Free Entry Exhibition Only' ticket when you book at www.ase.org.uk/annual-conference and you can attend this workshop PLUS tour the scientific resources on offer in the Exhibition Marquee.
So come along and see how we can help.

Make your Own Microfluidic Lab on a Chip! W27
The expanding field of microfluidic lab on a chip technology is brought to the classroom using affordable techniques for the production of lab on a chip devices. In the hands-on session participants will learn how to make such devices using standard office equipment. The procedures can be used in science education programmes in primary or secondary schools, and even in higher education courses.

Lab on a chip devices can be used on the tabletop. A sample video of such a device produced from office lamination foil: https://youtu.be/XwR7ft-TWFc?list=PL95349EFBE9DF2A88

If the Lab on a chip devices have standard dimensions, they also can be mounted in a quite simple chip holder, allowing fluidic connections to syringes and pumps. A complete microfluidic setup can be built at limitied cost. Small scale chemistry like formation of nanoparticles and precipitations for use in the classroom can be experienced during the workshop. Using advanced, nearly professional equipment, allows numerous experiments demonstrating the essentials of microfluidics. 

More information at labochip.org and our article in J. Chem. Education (in press), published online 15 december 2017: http://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/acs.jchemed.7b00506.

Also the novel unpublished use of a digital cutting machine to produce fluidic devices from foil will be demonstrated. The handouts of the presentation will be shared after the workshop. Several video's can be viewed after clicking marks in the presentation.

BBC Terrific Scientific with Maggie Aderin-Pocock S22
Terrific Scientific is an ambitious campaign from the BBC. Our goal is to inspire primary school pupils to discover their inner scientist.
Currently, fewer than 15% of 10-14 year olds aspire to pursue a career as a scientist, leaving the UK with a potential skills shortage.
The BBC has partnered with leading universities to create a series of child-friendly nationwide scientific investigations. The data gathered is sent to the universities and feeds into real academic studies. Join us on a national journey of scientific discovery!
