Let's Make Models of Molecules (Flex)
In this flexible schedule course, students will learn about different molecules each week and then make models of them out of clay.
Molecules make up our entire world, and atoms make up molecules. In this course, students will create clay atoms and then use them to build 3-4 new clay molecules each week. Molecules will range from the simple (water, carbon dioxide) to the complex (sucrose) and everything in between. This class is perfect for students who are interested in chemistry and just starting to learn about atoms and molecules. Each week in the classroom, there will be several videos and handouts posted.

I am a certified chemistry teacher (grades 7-12) with almost two decades of teaching experience. I have 7 years of experience in the high school classroom and four years of experience teaching online through Outschool. I have also done private tutoring at the high school and college level, taught freshman college chemistry recitations and labs, and worked in various science outreach settings including museums, middle school after school science programs, and science summer camps. From these experiences, I have worked with a lot of different types of learners at various stages of interest, ability, and motivation- from preschoolers wide-eyed at everything in science to high school students simply taking the class as a requirement to college freshmen chemistry majors passionate about the course with never-ending questions. I can tailor my teaching style to fit the learner, and I do what I can to make it approachable by anyone.
Learners will need clay and toothpicks each week. (Air dry clay works well but other types of clay can work too) They will also need paper (or that week's printouts) and something to write with. The course material can be completed without the use of a printer.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Links to unlisted YouTube videos will be used to deliver instructor-created course content. This does not require any registration or account.
