Atom Secrets 3: 3D Molecule Model Building & Molecular Exploration!
In this hands-on course, we'll build a wide variety of molecule models using a high school-level organic chemistry modeling kit! We'll make molecules using single, double and triple covalent bonds, build carbon allotropes such as Diamond and Graphene, and much more.

How does a "Multi-Day" course work?
Meets multiple times at scheduled times
Live video chats, recorded and monitored for safety and quality
Discussions via classroom forum and private messages with the teacher
Great for engaging projects and interacting with diverse classmates from other states and countries
How Outschool Works
There are no open spots for this class, but you can request another time or scroll down to find more classes like this.
This 4-session course guides students, step-by-step, through the hands-on process of constructing and understanding molecular models made with a high school-level chemistry modeling kit! These 3-dimensional molecule structures explore molecular bonding concepts and help students understand more complex molecules. We'll discuss the physical and chemical properties of each molecule built, and discuss conditions for molecule formation. We'll also use the 3D models to study bond angles, symmetry...
A detailed description of each session's learning goals is listed below: Session 1 Students will learn about: - Introduce modeling molecules with Hydrogen, Oxygen and Carbon - Introduction to the various parts in the hands-on 3D Modeling Kit (if possible, please purchase the recommended kit, so that your learner can follow along easily with the instructor) - Building 2-atom molecules with Hydrogen, Oxygen and Carbon - The chemical and physical characteristics of the molecules built Session 2 Students will learn about: - Building 3-atom molecules with Hydrogen, Oxygen and Carbon - Building the molecule of Ethene and learning about the process of polymerization - The chemical and physical characteristics of the molecules built Session 3 Students will learn about: - Building Allotropes of Carbon: Diamond, Graphite and Graphene - Learning how the arrangement of carbon atoms affects the properties of the allotrope - Building models with Fluorine, Chlorine, Bromine, Iodine - The chemical and physical characteristics of the molecules built Session 4 Students will learn about: - Building more complex models with Boron, Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Sulfur - Learning about exceptions to the Octet Rule of Molecular formations - The chemical and physical characteristics of the molecules built
We're dedicated to introducing young students to the amazing world of quantum physics, technological innovation and design! We've been offering STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math) classes and creating educational materials for students of all ages for over 15 years. We're excited to share this course content with more students through Outschool.
No required homework, but students will be provided with Review Handouts after each session.
3 files available upon enrollmentThe course uses the kit listed below: Old Nobby Organic Chemistry Modeling Kit, $25 Available from Amazon - please search for "OLD NOBBY Organic Chemistry Model Kit" (239 Pieces) to find this specific kit. It is recommended to purchase this kit or a similar ball-and-stick type kit with at least 230 pieces, so that students can easily follow along with the instructor. Any similar ball-and-stick type kit may be used, since color-coding of atoms is fairly standardized (there may be minor differences between kits which can be clarified in class as needed). Please Note: the "Happy Atoms" kits don't include enough Carbon atoms and have a different magnetic design that doesn't represent bond angles accurately, so they are not a good fit for this course. The course also utilizes illustrated Atom Cards. Printable handouts of the Atom Cards will be provided upon enrollment for self-printing at home. (These are the same cards used in Atom Secrets Level 1 and Level 2).
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learner progress will be assessed through in-class building and participation.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
