Teaching Modules:

This page contains a collection of teaching moduels we've found to be useful for both undergraduate STEM education and K-12 outreach. Most are STEM demonstrations we've found online and modified for our purposes and fleshed out a bit.

IMPORTANT!!! Under no circumstances should an unsupervised minor perform the procedures described herein. All the following described experiments and teaching modules should be supervised by an adult who is completely familiar with and takes full responsibility for all possible hazards.
