Module 1B is the practical application of the chemistry learned in module 1A. Air monitoring and detection devices are discussed and participants will have the opportunity to use not only the instrumentation but hands-on laboratory field identification of unknown solid and liquid samples. Participants will work in small groups referencing chemical information and characteristics from written texts and resources.

Live demonstrations are used to show reaction consequences.
