Focuses on structure, bonding, and reaction mechanisms of inorganic compounds using molecular orbital theory as a basis for metal-ligand interaction. Compounds covered include transition metal coordination compounds, organometallic compounds, and bioinorganic complexes. Other topics include redox chemistry, nuclear chemistry, and an introduction to solid-state chemistry.
I know it's not really a lab experiment, but we don't seem to have a "resource" option for submitting content. I quickly put this together based on what my students had done this summer, as a quick way for them to keep me up-to-date on their weekly, monthly, or semester progress. (Of course, I was hovering over them the entire time and know what they did, but this seemed like a good way for them to communicate their progress.)
I think it would work equally as well in a Google Doc, so multiple students on the same project can see what has been done by their peers.
In searching for a way to review topics before exams, I was informed about this powerpoint template which is macro'd to be operated as a realistic Jeopardy game. The site for the original author of the macro is:

A systematic study of both the fundamental principles and the descriptive chemistry needed to understand the properties of the main group elements and their compounds. (Three lecture, one recitation, and three laboratory hours per week) Prerequisites: CHEM 1200.
Atomic and molecular structure, bonding concepts used in the practice of inorganic chemistry. Applications of symmetry and group theory to structure, bonding, and spectra.
This paper discusses the synthesis and characterization of a novel compound of nitrogen. The pre-discussion assignment asks students draw a Lewis structure for the N5+ cation, and using the tools of group theory, conduct a normal mode vibrational analysis, comparing the results to the experimental Raman spectral data.
This article describes the synthesis and characterization of ternary rare-earth gallium bismuthide, LaGaBi
