Near the beginning of the C-MoR project, we entered into a partnership with the Richmond Math-Science Center (RMSC), a resource center for elementary, middle, and high schools in the central Virginia region. As part of this partnership the RMSC obtained funds for gas chromatography instrumentation. These instruments together with the modules that we developed as part of the C-MoR project (in particular the GC and Organic Structures Modules) have allowed our partnership to blossom. At this point, we have:
The Math-Science Center has equipped a large van with several gas chromatographs, and now sends the van to one school at a time for a few days each, allowing science classes to use the instruments. Our modules are used in preparing students for these visits and in helping them to understand what they did after the van leaves.
