How to use this exercise?
The students will assemble the different printed models in order to set and create many chemical compounds. They will be able to see the compounds in three dimensions.
Number of pieces of this exercise
There are 2 kinds of models: molecules and connectors.
– Molecules: They are balls, with the name of the molecule engraved or embossed on them. Molecules may have different sizes and colours. They should include several holes in order to connect them with other molecules, with the connectors.
– Connectors: They are basically sticks, for connecting the molecules. There can be more than one kind of connector.

How can the model be used in class?
The models will be used for a better way of teaching chemical formulation. Students will assemble the molecules and connectors in order to create the compounds the teacher specify. And what is better, they will be able to see the compounds in 3 dimensions.
Also, different colours and sizes can be used for the molecules, in order to identify better the different molecules. Ex.: C, H, OH, N, O…
What benefits can its use have?
Teachers will be able to transform chemical formulation into a game. It’s a good way to learn in an interactive way.
Students would be able how to build/set organic and inorganic compounds such as hydrocarbons, alcohols, organic acids, etc.
Can it be used in other subjects?
