Resources Mentioned During the Institute

Tetrahedral Dog Toy
--I've been watching and have not seen ANY tetrahedral-shaped dog toys online or in the store. This one comes with the center and one ball. You can buy two extra balls. To make a great tetrahedral model, you would need to buy two extra ball kits and the central toy. This place is a wholesale house. If you want the toy, the two extra ball packs, there is a shipping and a minimum order charge. It comes out to $41! Maybe I should keep looking.

Gels (theatrical cellophane) used in the ROYGBV Photoelectric Effect Demo
Roscolux Rx25 (Lt. Red) -- (this leaks a little)
Roscolux Rx22 (Deep Amber)
Roscolux Rx10 (Med. Yellow)
[Note: I put some of the Med. Yellow behind the Red and Orange windows, too.]
Roscolux Rx 389 (Chroma Green)
Roscolux Rx 68 (Sky Blue)
Roscolux Rx48 (Rose Purple)
I bought my gels at: Premier Lighting.

Resources From Former Years:
Website: Activity of Metals Simulation
John Gelder at Oklahoma State University has many useful simulations and animations that he uses in this chemistry classes as well as his distance learning classes. It is worth looking around his site for little gems such as this one. They may be part of his chemistry courses. Explore.

Website: Tom Greenbowe at Iowa State--Lab Simulations
I have worked on some committees with Tom Greenbowe and he has been developing some great-looking laboratory simulations. This looks like the main page for finding all of them, but I haven't fully explored the site. They generally have nice graphics and are interactive.
