Anna Larsen, Department of Chemistry - Ithaca College (2005-06)
Proposal: Fuel Cells: Clean Power for Today and Tomorrow.
Outcome: This project developed lecture and hands-on activities related to fuel cell technology. Using commercially available components, students experimentally explore how fuel cells work and the safe storage and distribution of hydrogen. This module was first implemented in Environmental Chemistry I, and could be guest taught in a variety of courses including the ”fourth hour” of First Year Seminars in the School of Humanities and Sciences.
Kerri Lee, Department of Chemistry - Ithaca College (2005-06)
Proposal: Ithaca Seminar: Sustaining Our Worlds.
Outcome: This project developed modules for use in the all-college first year seminars focused on sustainability (8 sections). The modules focus on teaching students to analyze and evaluate data sources and scientific studies, and to conduct cradle-to-grave analyses of common products such as bottled water or gasoline.
