E3394: Introductory Concepts in Biophysics in Splash! Spring 2014 (Apr. 12 - 13, 2014)
Serves to introduce advanced high school students to cutting-edge research in the field of biophysics and how to perform calculations needed to study biology from a physical standpoint. Some topics that will be covered: Protein composition and structure and the role of protein structure to function Enzymes: basic concepts and kinetics Effect of force on chemical reaction kinetics Polymer dynamics and its role in biological function Will refer to recent publications from the field.

P2199: Magical Fluids - Unveiling the secret of funny fluids in Splash! Spring 2012 (Apr. 21 - 22, 2012)
In this class, budding wizards will be trained on making mixtures with magical effects. Think chemistry, but with a more sinister twist. With the correct magical ingredients we will brew fluids that creep up on wands, slither and bounce off walls. If this is not exciting enough, we will train ourselves on running on a pool filled with magic fluid. –––- *This course has been approved by the Ministry of Magic.

P1670: Green Lantern? Green Flames. Electronic Transitions and Radiation in Splash! Fall 2011 (Oct. 29 - 30, 2011)
In this class, we will learn why different metal salts burn different colors. For instance, potassium chloride burns purple while cupric sulfate burns green. The demonstration will be used as motivation to explain the chemical principles behind electronic transition of various metals, and to provide a brief summary of the electromagnetic spectrum, fluorescence, electronic states in a lattice, and atomic orbital theory.
