NORTH NEWTON, KAN. - Bethel College student Daniel Kurt Unruh, Peabody, presented his poster entitled "Remote Control UV-Vis Spectroscopy for Secondary Schools" at the Midwest meeting of the American Chemical Society (ACS) on Oct. 21 in Manhattan, Kan. Unruh, in collaboration with Gary Histand, associate professor of chemistry, and Richard P. Zerger, professor of chemistry, used the Lab-View computer program, National Instruments interface hardware and an Ocean-Optics UV-Visible spectrometer to create a web-based series of equilibrium experiments for secondary school chemistry students. The project seeks to make inquiry-based learning experiences available for those students.

Unruh generated the Lab-View source code to operate the spectrometer, the temperature-control mechanism and the reagent pumps for the experiment. He also provided a live camera feed of the experiment.

Unruh, a junior chemistry major, is the son of Harlin and Doris Unruh of Peabody.
