Collisions is a tablet-based chemistry game where students play with the building blocks of chemistry. The goal is to learn more about how electrons, atoms, molecules etc. affect each other in real world chemistry. Collisions is still in development and a pricing plan has not yet been determined.
Students use Collisions to play through several chemistry subject areas. Each area has a separate game, but the games have interconnected levels. In one, students arrange atoms to form molecules. The program gives students a limited number of atoms to work with, and they must use them to form a certain molecule. In the game, atoms interact with each other as they would in real life: In one example in a demo video, a Nitrogen atom will not bind with an Oxygen atom, if only three electrons are shared.
The game provides students with small bits of feedback to help them improve and check their work. For example, the atom-combining game will count the numbers of electrons in a shell to demonstrate to the student whether she has combined them correctly.
Pricing for Collisions has not yet been determined.
WHO’S USING IT?
