Title: Molecular Literacy
Url: http://molit.concord.org/
Publisher: Concord Consortium
Description: This three-year project worked to enhance science and technology teaching in grades 10-14 by providing Molecular Literacy content in support of careers in biotechnology and nanotechnology. The project developed new materials that used highly interactive molecular dynamics and quantum mechanics models, and embed these models in learning activities that are appropriate for both core science courses and specialized courses teaching biotechnology and nanotechnology workplace competencies. In developing these materials, the Concord Consortium worked with its partner, Middlesex Community College, Bedford, Massachusetts, as well as its feeder high schools, additional community colleges (including Roxbury Community College, Parkland College, and Wachusetts Community College), biotechnology and nanotechnology companies, and CORD, an educational non-profit in Texas, which provided national dissemination. By clicking on "View our database Activities" users will find their Molecular Literacy Database which is designed to provide teachers and students with easy access to our model-based activities.
