Demonstrations Guaranteed to Get Ooohs & Ahhhss – A Tribute to Irwin Talesnick
Steve Spangler returns to ChemEd 2023 with more of his favorite demonstrations guaranteed to get ooohs & ahhhs (a title that Irwin Talesnick wrote for his plenary lecture at ChemEd’99). Steve’s recent work in science education focuses on the power of creating student-centered experiences through purpose-driven engagement. In other words, you’ll see demos that fizz, pop, smoke, erupt, change color, and cause students to lean in and want to learn more. As a special tribute to his dear friend, Steve will share a few of Irwin Talesnick’s favorite demos, stories, and experiences that inspire us all to celebrate Irwin’s passion for the the joy of teaching. Come to laugh a little and learn a lot.
