Bilingual Interactive Periodic Table
To create a bilingual (Welsh/English) interactive periodic table that would work on a smartboard for teaching use in classrooms as well as a mobile phone application, and a stand alone display.
To assist schools with their teaching as well as producing an interactive tool that can be used at degree level. It is also to link computer science and chemistry in order to outline research conducted in this area. Computational chemistry is a very active research field at Bangor University.
The Welsh medium content of the project is also critical to the teaching of Chemistry in Wales and at Bangor University. The mobile phone application will be available for free download and will include a welsh version, currently not available. This will be useful for school pupils taking A Level chemistry as well as our undergraduate students and undergraduates studying for a Chemistry degree through the medium of Welsh.
A bilingual interactive periodic table for use with mobile phones and increase the novel interactions possible with smartboards in class rooms.
Table to be used in School of Chemistry’s Schools activities.
Increased interactive teaching opportunities for Chemistry teaching in schools and universities. The School of Chemistry often finds that students entering the first year do not have a good enough grasp of the periodic table, meaning that intensive teaching is required in the first year to bring students to the desired level. Hopefully if this tool is used in schools there will not be a need for this intensive teaching.
