Crystalline solids play a critical role in our everyday lives from building construction to computer electronics to jewelry. This workshop will introduce teachers to Crystal Viewer, a software program that can be used to view the periodic structure of crystalline solids. Dr. Sadtler will show teachers how to download the freely available software, load crystal structure files, and view different crystals. Sadtler will incorporate Next Generation Science Standards in connecting the structure of crystalline solids with their physical properties and chemical reactivity. Examples will include how the different crystalline structures of carbon (e.g. diamond and graphite) lead to very different observable properties.
