Happy Atoms Introductory Set (17 Atoms) (Eng)
With a revolutionary approach to teaching chemistry, kids can make their own happy atoms! Using a set of 17 atom models representing different elements, kids can assemble their own molecular models. The atoms stick together easily with magnets: metal tips on the ends of rubbery arms, which represent free electrons, snap onto magnetic bonding sites on the atom spheres, which represent empty spots for electrons in the atoms outermost electron shell. They then use the included app for iPad¨ and iPhone¨ to snap its picture, and the app uses state-of-the-art image recognition technology to identify the molecule. The app recognizes tens of thousands of molecules. The app gives detailed information about 120 of the most important molecules and takes kids on guided quests to discover and learn about new molecules. Kids track their progress with the app, collecting sets of molecules that they have built and explored. This new technology now enables us to take an innovative approach to teaching chemistry, making it more tangible and instinctive than ever before. Requires iPad or iPhone.
