Thames and Kosmos 585002 Happy Atoms Introductory Set

Features

Chemistry is the science of materials, their properties, and how they react with each other. All materials are made of atoms. Why do some atoms combine with each other while other atoms do not? because atoms just want to be happy! atoms tend to be more stable, or "happy," when they have certain numbers of electrons whizzing around their cores. Where do they find extra electrons if they need more to be happy? from other atoms that have too many electrons, of course! when atoms share or exchange electrons to be happy, they stick together. Happy atoms form molecules! this physical and digital kit lets you discover the world of molecules in an intuitive, hands-on way. Using a set of 17 atom models representing 6 different elements, you can assemble your own molecular models. The atoms stick together easily with magnets: metal tips on the ends of rubbery arms, which represent free electrons, snap onto magnetic bonding sites on the atom spheres, which represent empty spots for electrons in the atom's outermost electron shell. But how do you know what the molecule you've snapped together is? you use the included app for iPad and iPhone to snap its picture, and the app uses state-of-the-art image recognition technology to identify the molecule. The app recognizes tens of thousands of molecules and presents detailed information about 120 of the most important ones, such as a molecule's usage, properties, hazards, formula, and structure. The app takes you on guided quests to discover new molecules and learn about them, and you can also track your progress, collecting sets of molecules that you have built and explored. Many people think of chemistry as complicated and hard to grasp. New technology now enables us to take this innovative approach to teaching chemistry, making it more tangible and instinctive than ever before. Requires iPad or iPhone.

Chemistry is the science of materials, their properties, and how they react with each other. All materials are made of atoms. Why do some atoms combine with each other while other atoms do not? Because atoms just want to be happy! Of course, atoms don’t really have feelings. But they do have observable behaviors. And atoms tend to be more stable, or “happy,” when they have certain numbers of electrons whizzing around their cores. Where do they find extra electrons if they need more to be happy? From other atoms that have too many electrons, of course! When atoms share or exchange electrons to be happy, they stick together. Happy atoms form molecules!

I got this for my son who's a science major to help with his studies. It really helps him visualize the molecules and drives his schoolwork home.

Awesome way to learn

While there's really not a ton of atoms, they can be combined to make many different molecules. The app is cool too because even if you just randomly throw stuff together the app can probably identify it.

Wish they had this when I was a kid

This is an amazing set, and would have been so helpful when I was younger. My nephew loved it because the connectors help reinforce how a specific atom/electron are connected. The clear tubes mean that the atom "wants to release a given electron". Other connectors indicate that particles are paired and so on.

The app is also a great add-on, definitely reinforces the learning.

Hands down, one of the best STEM toys you can get.
