Description

Join the Collisions pedagogy team on Tuesday, November 5th (Election Day) for a day of hands-on chemistry-specific professional development!

At this PD, we will discuss how you can engage your chemistry students, deepen understanding and enhance your instruction using Collisions, our system of interconnected digital chemistry games. Currently, Collisions includes the following seven games: Atoms, Ions, Covalent Bonding, Ionic Bonding, Intermolecular Forces, Phase Change and Acids and Bases. We will share ready-made resources, activities, and lesson plans for you to use in your chemistry classroom! Please bring your own laptop or tablet on the day of the event.
