|Chemistry hosts 3rd Annual Air Pollution Workshops for high school students|
Chemistry is hosting its 3rd Annual Air Pollution Workshops on Monday, March 15, and Tuesday, March 16. About 120 students from six area high schools are registered for the program: East Grand Forks Senior High School; Fordville-Lankin Public School; Hatton Public School; Larimore High School; North Border Walhalla K-12 School; and Valley High School, Hoople.
Students will learn from presentations about air pollution issues, global warming, environmentally friendly energy strategies and the data necessary for the modeling of climate. The presenters are all UND faculty members: Alena Kubatova, Chemistry; David Delene, Atmospheric Sciences; and Steve Benson and Frank Bowman, both of Chemical Engineering. UND science graduate students will also help to facilitate this learning experience.
The program also includes the following hands-on demonstrations in the Chemistry Department: aerosol number concentration measurements; air pollution resources on the Web; analysis of arson smoke using gas chromatography; and “clouds in a bottle.”
As part of the program, students will tour the National Center for Hydrogen Technology at the EERC.
