The Rutgers Chemistry Lecture Demonstration Facility is devoted to supporting lecture content in classes taught by Chemistry and Chemical Biology (CCB) faculty through visual aids and live demonstrations. CCB faculty can consult with the CLD coordinator, and search for and request lecture demonstrations to be set up for their classes. The facility will assist in preparation of the demonstrations, and, if needed, assist in their execution. The CLD facility is also dedicated to ensuring safety in the classroom, and in delivering demonstrations with the most effective presentation. Demonstrations may often be video taped and put on-line.
The CLD facility is a key component of the educational infrastructure in the department, and an important resource for both students and faculty. The creation and maintenance of the facility reflects the department's dedication to undergraduate chemical education, and the promotion of chemistry as a central science. In addition to providing lecture demonstration support for CCB faculty campus-wide, the CLD Facility is also engaged in education and outreach efforts both within Rutgers, locally in the state of New Jersey, and nationwide.
