Product Description:

The Atoms and Molecules Introductory Set includes 17 atoms - 8 hydrogen, 3 carbon, 2 oxygen, 2 nitrogen, 1 chlorine, and 1 sodium, and a 16-page guide and 73 activities.

Publisher Description:

Chemistry is the science of materials, their properties, and how they react with each other. All materials are made of atoms. Why do some atoms combine with each other while other atoms do not? Because atoms just want to be happy!

With this revolutionary approach to teaching chemistry, you can make your own happy atoms! This physical and digital kit lets you discover the world of molecules in an intuitive, hands-on way.

Using a set of 17 atom models representing 6 different elements, you can assemble your 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.

But how do you know what the molecule youve snapped together is? You 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. It presents detailed information about 120 of the most important molecules, such as a molecules usage, properties, hazards, formula, and structure.

Category Description for Happy Atoms:

I've never seen an introduction to atoms and molecules quite like this one. Great for middle school and beyond, students will learn about atoms and properties of atoms, molecules, bonding, and much more.

The Complete Kit includes 50 atoms - 14 hydrogen, 1 helium, 2 lithium, 2 beryllium, 6 carbon, 3 nitrogen, 6 oxygen, 2 fluorine, 1 neon, 2 sodium, 2 magnesium, 2 silicon, 2 phosphorus, 2 sulfur, 2 chlorine, and 1 argon. It also includes a periodic table (truncated with only 16 elements or atoms), white drawstring bag for storage, guide and over 200 activities.

To use these products to the fullest extent, you need the Happy Atoms App, for iPhone and iPad. I downloaded the app to my iPhone to try out this product - oh what fun! Ramsey (almost 6) and I built molecules from the atoms in the kit and snapped their pictures. After capturing the molecule image, we tapped on each atom, which placed a marker or target on the image. We scanned the image, then synthesized it to see a virtual representation of our molecule with identification. We touched the "examine" icon to see the name of our molecule, the atoms that construct it, the type of bond, molecular geometry, state of matter, use or application, and the breakdown of our molecule's name. As we built and scanned our molecules, we filled our molecule map. The map also gave 'hints' to guide us to our next atom-building project - there are 150 molecules on the map. Activities can also be completed by entering the labs of Harper and Andee, the animated chemist who guides through activities!

Atoms connect together magnetically to represent bonding and to form molecules. Each atom sphere has strategically placed magnetic spots for attachment of the flexible rubbery arms protruding from some of the spheres. At the end of each arm is a magnetic tip that represents valence electrons.

This would be a great visual for high school students taking physical science/chemistry. Since this is a great kinesthetic way to learn about and understand atoms, molecules, bonding, etc., with adult supervision, middle or even younger students would have a fun, unique introduction. Atoms are happiest when they are connecting with other atoms. Obviously, there are far more molecules than those identified with this program, but what an awesome introduction! ~ Donna
