Jacobsen and Sowell kicked off this web seminar by sharing a Kool-Aid Chromatography activity to announce the theme of National Chemistry Week 2015: “Chemistry Colors Our World.” The program continued with real-time classroom ideas on how to incorporate color into chemistry teaching, including infrared light, the visible light spectrum and flame testing. Information was also shared about the American Chemical Society’s “Celebrating Chemistry Magazine” and other chemistry related resources for teaching. Ideas ranged from using food for chromatography activities to metal complexes in solutions. All ideas are included in the collection. The web seminar concluded with a brief question and answer session regarding the activities presented.
