Countless hours and resources have been devoted to finding ways to make new technologies, established methods more efficient, and testing methods more portable. Similarly, there is much importance placed on finding ways to help students and future researchers excel academically. This thesis is a hybrid of two separate projects. The first takes a closer look into finding ways to reduce the effects of Joule heating in PDMS microchips. The second project examines the effect of incorporating structured group work into Analytical Chemistry at The University of Texas at San Antonio.
