The Chemistry Collective
The Chemistry Collective is a collection of virtual labs, scenario-based learning activities, and concepts tests which can be incorporated into a variety of teaching approaches as pre-labs, alternatives to textbook homework, and in-class activities for individuals or teams. It is organized by a group of faculty and staff at Carnegie Mellon University for college and high school teachers who are interested in using, assessing, and/or creating engaging online activities for chemistry education.

How to participate
The ChemCollective is funded by the National Science Foundation through the Course, Curriculum and Laboratory Improvement program and the National Science Digital Library.
Look for us at this year’s Biennial Conference on Chemical Education BCCE 2012 at Penn State University in University Park, PA. Stop by our booth to see our most recent work and research.
In July we exhibited at this year’s ChemEd2011 conference at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Michigan. We also presented a workshop on classroom uses for the ChemCollective materials.
In December 2010, we presented our collaborative molecular visualization work, "Visualization in Chemical Education" at the PacifiChem 2010 conference, in Honolulu, Hawaii.
In August 2010, we presented our new approach to teaching equilibrium and acid/base chemistry in a talk, "Making the implicit explicit in acid-base instruction" at the 2010 ACS Fall National Meeting in Boston, Ma.
Also in August 2010, we presented 2 papers, "Learning about student cognition by logging interactions with online activities" and "Recurring patterns: A cross-disciplinary approach to the big ideas of molecular science" at the 2010 BCCE at the University of North Texas in Denton, Texas.
