Dr. Frederick A. Senese, an associate professor of Chemistry at Frostburg State University, won a 2004 Science and Technology Web Award for his Web site “General Chemistry Online,” from Scientific American.com.
“General Chemistry Online” covers the basics and beyond in chemistry. The site has a vast FAQ section on all things chemical, a library of common compounds and an exam survival guide for students. A pop-up periodic table is just one of several innovative features that separate this Web site from others.
Senese has been honored several times for his efforts in chemistry. In 2000, he was profiled in “Chemistry,” the quarterly publication of the American Chemical Society. He has also been honored for by the Association for the Advancement of Computing and Education for his paper “The Internet Chemistry Set: Web-Based Remote Laboratories for Distance Education in Chemistry.”
The Science and Technology Web Awards are given out to the 50 best sci/tech sites on the Web, voted by the editors of Scientific American.com. Scientific American.com is an in-depth Web site adaptation of “Scientific American” magazine.
