On Friday, October 18 at the 2019 Wisconsin Science Festival, Eric Wilcots the chair of the Festival’s Steering Committee and L&S Interim Dean announced the establishment of the Bassam Shakhashiri Faculty Engagement Award.  The award is named for Bassam, and to commemorate, Bassam was given a physical award. The new award will be inaugurated at the 2020 Wisconsin Science Festival, which will be Festival number 10. It will include a cash prize for a faculty member who distinguishes her or himself through their commitment to community engagement. The Wisconsin Science Festival will be developing a rubric and a nomination process for the juried award. This award was created:

  1. To recognize the unique role that Bassam has played in inspiriting faculty engagement at UW Madison and beyond
  2. To commemorate Bassam’s 50th year of making extraordinary contributions at UW-Madison
  3. To recognize Bassam’s role in inspiriting the creation of the Wisconsin Science Festival
  4. To inspire more faculty engagement going forward and especially in time for the 10th festival in 2020

The climate is changing: Investigating the effects on ponds, lakes, and oceans
A teacher workshop at the Wisconsin Society for Science Teachers (WSST) Conference

Instructors:
Bassam Z. Shakhashiri

Wisconsin Initiative for Science Literacy, Department of Chemistry, UW-Madison

Engage in hands-on activities and discussion you can use to introduce climate science concepts into the topics you already teach.

Climate science is complicated, but it is based on fundamental concepts from our more familiar sciences. So the complexity offers opportunities to integrate climate science into teaching the concepts already included in your courses. This workshop is designed to help you see how to fit climate science into what you are already doing. The hands-on activities focus on the properties of water (including phase change, heat capacity, solubility, and acid/base chemistry) and how these properties of Earth’s bodies of water are affected by human-caused increases in atmospheric greenhouse gases, especially carbon dioxide, and the resultant global warming. Many of the activities will be directly usable or easily adaptable for use in your classroom. All the written and projected materials will be available to you electronically for use in your classrooms.

Elissa was a finalist in the 1990 Science Talent Search, during which she met Prof. Shakhashiri who sparked her interest in science education. She hopes to someday combine her career in clinical medicine with her passion for sharing the joy of science.   With Aaron and Ben Charnay from Sycamore High School in Cincinnati, encouraged by their chemistry teacher Michael Geyer to pursue careers in chemistry. Wonderful to know that they have already done most demonstrations in my

This summer forum on science and society deals with the role of chemistry in our daily lives and with the impact of chemistry on advancing the human condition and assuring the quality of life locally and globally.  Selected topics in the fundamentals of chemistry, including chemical composition, structure of molecules, bonding, properties, and reactivity will be introduced. Special emphases will be placed on water quality, atmospheric chemistry, and general energy concepts and principles. An essential part of the course will be engaging chemistry demonstrations and some hands-on activities. Invited speakers from selected areas of specialization will provide a rich perspective on the topics to be discussed. Chemistry 107 is not intended for students who expect to take additional chemistry courses and it does not satisfy any prerequisites for further chemistry courses. Pre-Reqs: No previous chemistry required. Open to the general public for learners of all ages above the age of 17.

Thank you for your wonderful seminar tonight at Hope College before a packed auditorium! Your enthusiasm for science and learning is infectious. All the kids, young and "not-so-young", enjoyed it and learned something new!  My brain has indeed changed.

Several photos are attached, in commemoration of your talk. We look forward very much to your continued visit and seminar about "Enlightenment" on Friday.

Thank you also to Jim Gentile, Donna Sova, Mike Pikaart, Graham Peaslee, and audience-participant Mike Seymour for helping make this event such a success!
