|Opportunity Type:||Modeling Workshop
|Teacher Level:||High School
|Description:||A sequel to the Modeling Workshop in 1st semester chemistry content.
Peer leader: Larry Dukerich (if he is available then)
We will begin by debriefing your modeling experiences thus far and re-visiting changes to units 4-6. Then we will move on to unit 10 - Models of the Atom, Unit 11 - PT and Bonding, Unit 12 - Energy, Temperature and Entropy, Unit 13 - Equilibrium and Unit 14 - Acids & Bases. You may either work to get hours towards re-certification or earn graduate credit.
