Communicating about Molecules
Poster (konferens), 2009

In 2008, the Hasselblad Foundation started a graduate school in Molecular Science Education. The aim is to study “how formal, informal and virtual learning environments can contribute to developing students’ and citizens’ understanding of scientific phenomena from a molecular perspective”. The separate studies are intended to illuminate and enrich each other in an early stage in order to develop common research interests, but also each individual project. Five Ph. D-students are currently working on individual projects all grounded in these general research questions: •How are submicroscopic phenomena communicated in different contexts? •What impact do submicroscopic representations have on the understanding of chemical phenomena and how do these representations offer meaning in communication?
