- The step from the non-living into the living and then back into the non-living realm: photosynthesis, protein biosynthesis, mineral oil and products made out of it

- Development of an experimental approach, including invention of structural formula and student experiments; common work on shared examples of best practice; how to include long-time experiments into a main lesson block
This seminar consists of two parts. Please sign in also for course C06.
C06 Chemistry II: Chemical Exercises
Dirk Rohde | Saturday – Wednesday, 11.30 am – 1 pm | Thursday, 9.45 – 11 am
Experiments related to the main course will be carried out that are suitable for teacher demonstrations and/or which can be done by students.
Please bring your own lab coat! It is highly recommended to participate in course C04 since this practical course is mainly a continuation.
F01 Context-based Approaches to the Atom for Physicists and Chemists
Dirk Rohde, Wilfried Sommer | Saturday – Tuesday, 7.15 – 8.30 pm
If a mere 3rd-person-perspective approach reduces the experience to atoms and molecules, and assigns to localized systems the power to make appearances appear, to bring forth experiences, and to control them, where is the starting point for an alternative? How can the environment become centered in a localized system, because it is constructed appropriately? The interrelation between substance and form as a framework.
