Poster Information
Abstract: A challenge in science education is engaging students with interactive and value driven science AND instant feedback. This presentation demonstrates how to meet that challenge with portable elemental analysis. It is ideal to teach the significance of science in society, the rewards of gained scientific knowledge, and how theoretical science can be applied to every day things. It also rewards teachers with more student “aha” moments.

Introductory projects illustrate how point-and-shoot tests on everyday samples like coins, jewelry and toys bring the periodic table to life. Intermediate projects illustrate how comparative spectra can provide decisive information. Advanced projects illustrate the importance of representative sampling.
Summary: Portable Spectroscopy allows one to take the analyzer to the sample instead of bringing the sample to the analyzer. EDXRF is an elemental analysis spectroscopy technique which characterizes elements by their photon energies and intensities. It is an ideal technology to engage students with interactive and value driven science AND instant feedback.Report abuse »
