Finally, a way to get hands-on with atoms, isotopes, and ions... just watch out for those sub-atomic particles!
This innovative physics kit uses simple representations of protons, neutrons, and electrons to convey the complex characteristics of atoms, isotopes, and ions. Use the included plastic chips (sub-atomic particles) to build a series of atoms with various electron configurations and energy levels. Then, learn how changing the number of protons, neutrons, or electrons can produce an entirely different element!
Students are sure to enjoy the Atoms, Isotopes, and Ions Kit - a hands-on, reusable activity that brings the sub-atomic world to the macro-scale.
Each kit comes with a detailed teacher's guide and a complete student worksheet. Additionally, all supplies needed to conduct the hands-on activities are included. No specialized lab equipment is required - making this a perfect learning activity for all types of schools and homes.
Time to complete: 2 Class Periods (about 40 minutes each) with homework
