Chemistry Lecture Demonstration Facility - Highlights

Rutgers Brings Chemistry Class Alive

Boom. Rutgers chemistry Professor Darrin York and lab support specialist Bob Porcja are using in-class demonstrations to get students more interested in an often intimidating subject.  York and Porcja design the demonstrations to turn principles they cover in class into something more tangible.  They say connecting with the material this way helps students grasp concepts more easily and retain information longer.
