A Concord Consortium Project

This project is a continuation of the work on the Molecular Logic project

MOLIT MontageThe Molecular Literacy Project

This three-year project worked to enhance science and technology teaching in grades 10-14 by providing Molecular Literacy content in support of careers in biotechnology and nanotechnology. The project developed new materials that used highly interactive molecular dynamics and quantum mechanics models, and embed these models in learning activities that are appropriate for both core science courses and specialized courses teaching biotechnology and nanotechnology workplace competencies. In developing these materials, the Concord Consortium worked with its partner, Middlesex Community College, Bedford, Massachusetts, as well asĀ  its feeder high schools, additional community colleges (including Roxbury Community College, Parkland College, and Wachusetts Community College), biotechnology and nanotechnology companies, and CORD, an educational non-profit in Texas, which provided national dissemination.
