Molecular Models

Help me give my students molecule kits so they can "see" and touch molecules that we cannot see in real life

My Students

My students come from a wide range of interests and backgrounds. They are very hard workers and will put their minds to anything put in front of them.

Their creativity is astounding and they can produce things if materials are available to them.

My students have created a mousetrap vehicle, an airplane, a rube Goldburg machine and a thermodynamic device using only materials that were being discarded.

The majority of my students qualify for the government assisted free lunch program

My Project

Chemistry is a very hard subject to teach because atoms and molecules are very small and cannot be seen with the naked eye. Students have a hard time understanding what they cannot see.

These kits will allow my students to understand how atoms and molecules work in the real world.

Students will be able to really see how atoms connect in the real world to make common items. When students see how atoms connect, they have a greater understanding of how the world works.

We will then use them to represent balanced chemical equations which are a very hard concept when you cannot see how the atoms are connected.
