Students at the Southfield Public Schools’ Levey Middle School learned about the science involved in everyday living during a virtual workshop conducted by Lawrence Technological University’s Marburger STEM Center—the chemical reactions that turn flour, eggs, and chemicals into delicious cake.
Using innovative approaches to teach chemistry is the theme of a new book that includes a look at how Lawrence Technological University has used pop culture to make complex scientific ideas leap to life.
On Oct. 27, LTU’s Marburger STEM Center Ambassadors delivered a workshop virtually to Chrisondra Austin’s STEM class at Glenn W.
