NEACT Western Division Meeting

"Help Shuri place vibranium on the periodic table!  This webinar is going to take you to the intersection of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and the periodic table with a focus on   chemistry found in the movie, Black Panther.  The presenter will provide an overview of a 6-8 week, storylined and project-based unit that covers periodicity, atomic structure, metallic bonding, the origin of elements, as well as an engaging way to teach evidence-based argumentation.  Join us as we uncover the clues left in the first 22 movies of the MCU that will help your students place the fictional element, vibranium, on the periodic table and learn how to bring the science of Wakanda into your chemistry classroom!"
