Ethanol and Education: Alcohol as a Theme for Teaching Chemistry
This book comes from the symposium "Chemistry of Fermented Beverages" at the Biennial Conference on Chemical Education (BCCE) that was held in Grand Rapids, Michigan in August of 2014. The symposium and book address some wonderful opportunities to engage students in a wide variety of chemistry classes, field experiences, study abroad, and other learning activities through examples involving alcoholic beverages. The topic lends itself to treatments that range from serious to quirky and light-hearted, depending on the audience and objectives. Every subdiscipline of chemistry can be addressed through alcoholic beverages. All levels, from introductory chemistry for non-science majors to advanced chemistry seminars and research can incorporate the science of alcoholic beverages. This volume will cover some of the possibilities through the lens of the experiences of chemistry faculty who teach about alcoholic beverages in a variety of settings, ranging from traditional chemistry programs to technical programs in the alcohol industry.
