Happy Atoms is a molecular modeling system that bridges the analog and digital worlds. You can assemble your own molecular models using a set of 50 atoms representing 16 different elements. Then, the included app uses state-of-the-art vision algorithms to recognize the molecules you’ve created and provide information about them. The app takes you on guided quests to discover new molecules and tracks your progress, collecting sets of molecules that you’ve built and explored. This unique teaching tool provides a gamified learning environment for kids to study chemistry in a hands-on way.
Everyone will benefit from having a better understanding of chemistry, as many of the serious problems that confront humanity are chemistry problems with chemistry solutions, but many people think of this important field of science as too complicated and hard to grasp. New technology now enables us to take this innovative approach to teaching chemistry and help make it tangible.
