Virtual Orgo Race Nov 19

There will be a virtual Unreal Tournament (Educational Version) Race on Sat Nov 19, 2005 at noon EST (posted at that time here and on the EduFrag wiki). Anyone in the world can compete. Anyone can also submit true and false doors till the day before the race and I'll include the contributions if they are usable. Email me at bradlejc@drexel.edu when you complete the race. The winner will have to provide a screencast for proof. The free CamStudio or Camtasia can be used for this.

The topics include Lewis structures, Newman projections, Fisher projections, free radical halogenation, chirality, SN1, SN2, E1 and E2 mechanisms. The study material is covered in the organic chemistry screencasts for CHEM 241 at Drexel.

Practice on examples here.

The prize should be appreciated by any serious organic chemistry student.

Hi Jean-Claude...

A few of us in Aus have been following your gaming idea with UT... In case you're interested, a member of our Web Design class has created a 3D FPS that allows teams to play a multi-player "capture the flag" style game (or in our case, capture the disc), but where they are required to answer questions correctly before they can take the disc back to their base.

If you're interested, I've written up a bit about it and included the link to the download so you can try it out... see Gaming to Learn.
