Description

Come hear about a project that introduces students to medicinal chemistry in a high school setting by using interactive computing technology. I will describe the use of an iPAD that will mirror ChemDrawPro software wifi'd from a MacBook and visualized on a screen thus allowing mobility in the classroom and student interaction with 3D images of medicinal molecules and their structural/activity/relationship (SAR). (Grades: High School)

Greg Whatley is a Graduate of the Willamette MAT program 2007. Greg is a retired pharmacist with an interest in using medicinal chemistry presentations in order to "challenge and engage" high school chemistry students. A recipient of a M J Murdoch Charitable Trust grant, Greg worked this past summer with the Willamette University Chemistry department researching medicinal molecules and will do so next summer. He also received a SKEF grant that will allow him to purchase an iPAD.
