Dr. Kenia A. Parga Rivera

Chemical Education Research Lab

OVERVIEW:

1 STUDENT

1 PROJECT AS PI

1 COLLABORATIVE PROJECT

Research in my lab is focused on chemical education, particularly methods used in academia, as well as the broader topic of educating the public, whose misunderstanding of the topic can be detrimental to the progress of the discipline. Our goal is to carry out a longitudinal analysis to measure how misconceptions about electrostatic interactions affect the critical thinking of students. This is currently being measured in the courses of General Chemistry 2, and Advanced Inorganic Chemistry.
