VSEPR Student Model Kits

Students can assemble all of the basic VSEPR geometries up through all of the octahedral configurations.

Curriculum Notes 

Students can use these in class while you are doing an expository lecture on VSEPR configurations.

Lead Time 
Three days of lead time is required for this project.
Materials 

Up to 300 sets of:

  • 1 yellow octahedral central atom
  • 1 blue trigonal bipyramidal central atom
  • 1 black tetrahedral central atom
  • 6 white monovalent ligand atoms
  • 6 single bonds
