Atoms & Molecules

Learners will begin by solving the mystery of the non-browning "sugar". In the video mystery and hands-on modeling activity, learners will discover that everything in our world is composed of small atoms, which, when bonded together, create unique structures with unique properties. Learners then select their own element and bring it to life by either creating a profile for it or designing a product based on it.
