Thames & Kosmos Happy Atoms Introductory Set
With the revolutionary approach to teaching chemistry in Happy Atoms Introductory Set, you can make your own happy atoms. This physical and digital system 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 connect 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 atom’s outermost electron shell. The digital component takes this molecular modeling system to the next level. Using the Happy Atoms app and the camera on your tablet or smartphone, you can scan molecules you build. The app then uses state-of-the-art image recognition technology to identify the molecules. After a molecule is discovered, the app presents information about it, including its composition, usage, properties, hazards, formula, and structure. The app can recognize hundreds of the molecules that you can build with this set. It presents detailed information about 49 of the molecules you can build.
