Introductory chemistry: atoms and molecules

A hands-on workshop where students learn about chemistry through using the Molymod molecular model building set.

Topics are: atom structure, electron structure, Periodic Table, compounds, organic families and their structures, 3-dimensional shapes of simple molecules.

Suitable for ages 13-17.


Feedback about this workshop from previous attendees:

  • actually making and seeing the models made it so much easier for me to understand, it’s all falling into place now (16 year old who had been studying chemistry at home)
  • my boys loved this workshop.
  • my daughter liked the workshop. I just wish it had been longer, actually – she was just beginning to get a glimmer of the beauty of the molecules I think. It is SO not the same on paper or the Internet.
