Atom-Builder

Age Level: Ages: 12 +
By Developer: Slate and Tablets, LLC


Well, this is a pretty one-track minded application but definitely serves the educational purpose for which it was built. Do you remember being in chemistry class, sweating over the periodic table of the elements and having no idea what you were studying? Remember thinking to yourself, "What does an atom even look like?"

A lot of people get bored in Chemistry and it gives them a headache. Well this application seeks to remedy all that. This is application gives the student practice in building atoms, so he can see first hand how they are structured and how the different aspects of the elements related to each other.

The application challenges the students to learn the Period Table and its various symbols, allowing them to put that knowledge to use and create and model various elements. This gives the student something real to work with and look at.

As he gets better, the student can be challenged with a timed game on atom-building. For a first year Chem student, this comes highly recommended.
