The Littlest Scientists: Let's Learn Science and Experiment!

Hands-On Molecule Model Building! ( STEM / STEAM / Chemistry )

Quantum Physics for Kids
Average rating:4.9Number of reviews:(1,191)
In this hands-on course we'll build a wide variety of molecules using a fun and easy-to-use chemistry molecule modeling kit (like Legos with atoms)! We'll also explore each molecule & learn key molecular concepts. (Homeschool, Afterschool) #academic

Class Experience

US Grade 3 - 6
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

Session 5: 
- Build molecules present in our food and explore how they interact with the molecules present in our bodies.
- Construct the molecules of acetic acid (Vinegar) and Glucose (a Sugar) and learn how the shapes of these molecules affect their properties and give them their unique characteristics.

Session 6:
- Exploring molecules that we can smell.
- Construct the Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) Acetone and Limonene.
- Discuss how our noses work to sense them. 
- Learn about isomers, and how changing the arrangement of atoms in a molecule can produce very different properties. 

Session 7:
- Discuss proteins and biomolecules. 
- Discuss that all proteins are made of molecules called Amino Acids. These are the building blocks of proteins. 
- Construct a template for an Amino Acid and point out the different sections while explaining why the molecules are called Amino Acids. 
- Explore protein structure and protein folding. 

Session 8:
- Continue exploration of biomolecules, energy molecules and reactions within living systems. 
- Explore ATP: Adenosine Triphosphate. ATP is a molecule that provides energy to drive many processes. 
- ATP is a large molecule made of three parts, a nitrogen base, a sugar called ribose and a phosphorus molecule (triphosphate).  make these individual molecules and then assemble them into ATP. 
- Discuss the chemical reaction of photosynthesis. The molecule of ATP is also used in Photosynthesis to make food for the plant and release oxygen into the environment. Recreate this chemical reaction with our molecule kit. 
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.

The 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.
