This site is a good freshman or sophomore level introduction to diffraction and its application to studying crystal structure. Because it\'s very visual and interactive, it engages the student. It\'s not mathematical enough for an upper level course. The basics of diffraction are covered with excellent interactive demos. Demos are great as a supplement but not as a stand alone module on diffraction.
The site demonstrates principles behind the operation of the interferometer in an FTIR spectrometer. Graphics and interactive movies are used. Examples start from a single wavelength and build to the superposition of multiple wavelengths. The connection between an interferogram and a frequency domain spectrum is discussed.
Biosensors and Other Medical and Environmental Probes
This site links an article from the Oak Ridge Nat\'l Laboratory that reviews publications dealing with biosensors and their applications. Although limited to work from ORNL\'s scientists, it contains several examples of cutting-edge sensor devices with sufficient background information linking their use to real-world applications. The narrative is written more in a story-telling fashion than as a journal report that contributes to its readability. The descriptions and graphic illustrations co
Biological Animation Library
This site produced by the Dolan DNA Learning Center of the Cold Springs Harbor Laboratory contains a number of high quality animations that explain processes important in bioanalytical chemistry. For example, one animation illustrates the process of Sanger sequencing and another explains what Gene Chips are and how they work.

How to float an egg
Developed for third grade. This lesson begins by exploring the concepts of density and buoyancy with an introductory "sink or float" activity. In this activity students will be asked to predict whether they think each of a group of small objects will sink or float. The objects we used for this activity are on the materials list. This gets students interested and asking the question "why do some objects sink, and others float?" Students will be asked to think about this question before being give
