September: Communication. Chemistry is the message
In the ninth video of the Chemistry Calendar we investigate why the name Silicon Valley is associated with a lot of our new technology. Why would one of the elements in the Periodic Table give name to one of the centers for technological research?
The Chemistry Calendar 2011 is a joint project between Molecular Frontiers, Chalmers University of Technology, University of Gothenburg and Universeum. We work together with film company Untamed Science to launch a video per month during the International Year of Chemistry 2011.
For teachers: Teaching material, including descriptions of lab experiments can be found in the Teachers section on MoleClues! The video has subtitles that can be activated through the CC icon in the YouTube toolbar.
