Bradley mini-talk

Our chemistry department hosted a mini-symposium for graduate students to hear about what the faculty are doing in their research. We were limited to 15 minutes, which is a good way to keep all talks on the big picture. Students can always follow up with individual faculty members later if they are interested.

I divided mine up in two sections. The first part dealt with my nanotechnology work: bipolar electrochemistry on carbon nanotubes, which basically means doing electrochemistry on the tip of very tiny tubes without physically touching them. The second part was a quick summary of using blogs, wikis and games in education. I even had time to do a quick Unreal Tournament demo for a Lewis structure map quiz.

Here is the screencast mp3 podcast and Powerpoint of my talk.
