Glad to meet you! I am from Indiana and am enjoying the exchange of ideas. I
have a computer room for my chem students attached to our lab so we can do
lots of computer modeling and programs. Time is the limiting factor. Every
time you add something to a full curriculum something has to come out.
Getting that balance between lecture and demonstrations/modeling, lab, and
computer work to keep students engaged and thinking is the trick
