Atoms in Their Hands
Help me give my students a hands-on and virtual reality experience with Happy Atoms Magnetic Modeling Kit.
Students at my school apply to come here, they are motivated, engaged, and ready to learn. Students follow their career path which includes automotive service technology, culinary, construction technology, education, architectural design, IT networking, sports medicine, nursing assistant, and cosmetology to name a few. I see these students for their core science class, in particular chemistry and geoscience. These students amaze me with their desire to work in their future careers.
Science has been a class that many of my students feel that doesn't matter, but only a necessary class that will help them graduate.
I strive everyday to make class engaging and hands on. Tools to do this are not readily available or not in the budget. I want my students to have these opportunities and see the science in the world around them. Science matters and engaging science makes for critical thinkers that solve real world problems. This is my goal for all my students.
Atoms are small and not comprehended by many students. Students love hands on activities and there are few that can give the experience that this molecular modeling kit can do. Students are able to make models and then scan them to see what they are, what these molecules can do, and where they are found outside the classroom. Students eyes light up when they make connections from content presented in their classroom and the world outside.
3-D technology of atoms brings the incomprehensible to comprehensible.
Students will be able to practice making correct formulas, naming, and bonding through this kit. Students have amazing imaginations and while these are the uses I see, I know my students will take it further then I can imagine. These atom kits will engage students in a way not yet seen in their high school science courses.
