    Conrado's Bio:
    Born and raised in urban Madrid, lived in rural northern California and ended up in snowy suburban Minnesota. During the school year you'll find me firmly entrenched in a routine designed to develop my Psychology research skills, and during the summer you will probably not find me at all; in my free time, I enjoy going on trekking trips in the backcountry, adventuring through recondite countries and most importantly spending time with my family.

Experimenting with lectures

As part of my bio minor, I have to take an intro to chemistry course. Usually, professors teach these courses  in large lecture halls acoustically designed to bombard you with information without giving you the chance to interact with the material. Fortunately, professor Krysta Riel is battling this poor custom and trying to get rid of one of the last classes The College of St. Scholastica still offers in lecture format. As a good scientist, she’s carrying out research to strengthen her position. This semester, she’s teaching the same class in lecture and interactive format. I (fortunately) happen to be in the experimental condition, which means that rather than sitting down and listening to her rapid-fire information at us, I am granted the opportunity to stop and think about the concepts we’re learning, and engage in constant interactive activities to consolidate the information. Gotta love research!
