Teachers and Students Needed for Chemistry Tutorial Review

Jeff Dittel, of Quantum Simulations, Inc.
(http://www.quantumsimulations.com/index.php), reports that they have built
accessibility into their Quantum Chemistry Tutors, and need to field test
the Tutors with blind and visually impaired students as part of a two-year
federal research project funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Chemistry topics include: Chemical Bonding; Elements; Chemical Reactions;
Equation Balancing; Ionic Compound Formulas; Mathematics of Chemical
Formulas; Measurement; Oxidation Numbers; Stoichiometry

While primarily for high school and college-level students, some of the
Tutors are applicable for middle school students such as Elements,
Measurement and Chemical Reactions; so students from all three levels can
participate. In order to meet the requirements for the grant study, Quantum
will need to receive the student feedback surveys by February 26, 2010, and
estimate that it will take 1 to 2 hours of time for which they will offer an
honorarium of $100. Please contact Jeff at dittel at quantumsimulations.com
