This work focuses on the remote determination of the iron content in vitamin tablets. First-year chemistry students at Medicine Hat College analyze the iron content in commercial vitamins during the fall term using simple spectrophotometers. Then in the winter term the analysis is carried out once more, this time utilizing an Atomic Absorption Spectrometer, housed at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, BC. TRU has the capacity for remote control of their instruments, allowing them to work with students anywhere in the province, across Canada, and even around the world.

This session will demonstrate how this work can be done, using samples that were prepared at MHC and shipped to TRU. Chemistry faculty at TRU will be online to assist us, answer your questions, and discuss how this technology might serve your own students.
