We would like invite 2YC3 faculty and friends to join us the celebration of the 57th anniversary of the event that rocked the world in 1957: Sputnik (October 4th, 1957). We have selected a theme to take us from 1957 to 2057 through the eyes of the chemical world and faculty who teach chemistry.
We are currently looking for colleagues who would like to contribute to our program by giving a presentation, leading a workshop, or participating in panel discussions.We especially encourage topics related to our theme:
Since Sputnik Exploring e5th: Entropy, Energy, the Environment, the Extraordinary, and Exodus Earth through Chemistry.
(I have my college chemistry text published in 1957: 1st edition of Keenan and Wood to share with the participants)
If you would like to present on a different topic, please do not hesitate to submit an abstract, as we encourage as diverse a program as possible.
The standard breakout presentation will be in a classroom which holds between 32-40 persons with tables. All classrooms are Multimedia rooms which are equipped with presentation systems that include a desk top computer, laptop connectivity, opaque projector, projection system, video screen, and sound system. Individuals may bring their laptop and may connect to the multimedia station. The length of a standard breakout session is 45 minutes.
The workshops will be either placed in a large classroom with tables and a multimedia system (Capacity 40) or a 30 station computer lab for a hands-on. Workshops may be either 45 minutes or 90 minutes in length.
