2-D Molecular Models

Covalent Bonding with 21st Century Lewis Dots (2-D Molecular Model Kit)

NEW VERSION (UPDATE FEB 2022) This game allows you to bond atoms together to create molecules using 21st Century Lewis Dot Models. You can build molecules containing carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, and chlorine atoms. Molecules can range from 2 atoms up to 16 atoms! The interface is intuitive and visually pleasing, and sound effects are used to provide encouragement.

Combustion Reactions

Combustion Simulator

This game simulates combustion reactions involving fuels such as methane and propane. Users apply the concepts of Activation Energy and Conservation of Energy as they invest energy to break bonds and release energy when forming bonds. Molecules are represented using 21st Century Lewis Dot Models to form structures such as CO2 and H2O. Potential Energy in atoms and Heat Energy are made visible using "Jewels" as representations of energy.

The Crown Joules

The Crown Joules

This is an exciting game in which students earn points making molecules and gathering "Jewels" of Heat. Using 21st Century Lewis Dot Models, this game is designed to teach students how making and breaking bonds result in energy changes (exothermic and endothermic reactions) We have a few variations on our experiments page: including a Multi-Player and an Android version


Photosynthesis Simulator

Using 21st century Lewis Dot Models, users will create sugar molecules by adding Joules of Sunlight to CO2 and H2O molecules.
The concept of storing Joules as potential energy in molecules is conveyed using visible Jewels that users can invest to break covalent bonds.

Ionic Bonding

Matchmaker: Ionic Bonding

This game will strengthen student skills in creating ionic compounds from common monatomic and polyatomic ions. The concepts of VALENCE are clearly communicated using colorful representations of ions. A quiz mode allows students to demonstrate their skills in creating compounds and writing fomulas!

Ionic Reaction Simulator 2020

Ionic Reaction Simulator 2020

Using this simulator, students will model double replacement reactions that occur in solution.
In particular, this simulator demonstrates the formation of precipitates!
The behaviors of soluble and insoluble salts and the concept of excess and limiting reactants are emphasized.

Electron Transfer 2020

Electron Transfer 2020

This game provides a rich, entertaining model for electron transfer reactions based on the Activity Series. Users can vary temperature and acid concentration to investigate factors that influence reaction rates.

Heat Transfer 2020

Heat Transfer 2020

This game will introduce students to the concept of heat transfer through molecular collisions. Several scenarios are offered, emphasizing the concepts of Energy Conservation and Thermal Equilibrium.

Experiments and prototypes

On the following page are prototypes and failed experiments that were stable enough to run. Some of these are really cool and may be useful, but you may experience a few bugs and problems. However, if you find a lot of value in one of these projects, you can let us know and we just might finish the project. Otherwise, all the code is on GitHub and you are free to finish the project yourself.

TL;DR These are unfinished projects that might be useful

About us

Since we were founded in 2019 to make the electron transfer simulator, our team has grown in size and ambitions. Out team mostly consists of high school students and is led by Mr. Sogo, a chemistry teacher at Laguna Beach High School. Our mission is to provide free, open-source games and simulations to help teach principles in chemistry and physics classrooms. Our focus is on web-based applications so that all students can benefit whether they have a Chromebook, Apple Mac, or Windows based device. However, we are interested in new technology like virtual reality. Most of these experiments can be seen on the experiments page. All else can be seen here on the main page. If you have any feedback, want to report any problems with out website, or just want to say "thank you," our contact information is listed at the bottom of the page.
