Atomic and Molecular Modeling

VSEPR Molecular Shapes Student Model Kits

Students visualize and represent molecules in 3-Dimensions. High quality plastic individual model kits for VSEPR configurations are used to enable students to build molecular models. Using an active learning approacah, given a molecular formula, students draw the Lewis Structure, Identify the total regions of electron domains around the central atom, build the model of the molecule, draw a 3D representation of the molecule, identify the molecular shape, identify the bond angles, and classify the molecule as polar or non-polar.
