Session Title

Increasing STEM Research Skills Through An Interdisciplinary, Real-World Software Development /Chemistry Partnership Using iPads

Session Format

Presentation Session (20 minutes)

Location

Room 2904B

Abstract for the conference program

We addressed Organic Chemistry (Orgo) and Software Development (SD) learning needs in an interdisciplinary mobile learning project. SD students were hired to develop Orgo mobile applications for Apple products. An authentic opportunity for SD students to develop necessary STEM research skills, these apps helped the Orgo students as well. We discuss the implications in curricular design and student motivation/research skills.
