Overnight Crystals to illustrate solubility concepts part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This quick-lab provides a concrete experience with crystal formation from saturated salt solutions that can help students make solubility problems more relevant to their experience.

Subject: Chemistry:General Chemistry:Mixtures, Solutions, & Compounds,

Building A Protein part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This is a hands-on activity to assess the students understanding of peptide and disulfide bonds formed during protein synthesis. Students demonstrate the process of dehydration synthesis by combining amino acids through peptide bonds creating molecules of water, and one protein amino acid strand. It can also be used to assess students understanding of the process of translation.
