Topics

  • Molecules
  • Atoms
  • Bonds
  • Bond angle

Description

Explore molecule shapes by building molecules in 3D! Find out how a molecule's shape changes as you add atoms to a molecule.

Sample Learning Goals

  • Recognize that molecule shape is due to repulsions between atoms.
  • Recognize that bonds are not fixed in place, but can rotate around in response to repulsions.
