Game Exploring the Nanoscale Universe of Atoms and Molecules
My Molecularium is an engaging and challenging molecule-building game developed at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute for iOS and Android mobile devices. In the game, students launch atoms at target bond sites to assemble essential molecules of increasing complexity and difficulty. To direct their shots, students move their device using the app’s laser-guided gyroscope aim. As they play the game, students learn to use chemical and structural formulas to help them build a wide range of fascinating molecules—from water and vitamin C to caffeine and adrenaline. The app is free; in-app purchase of the rapid-fire power shot is $0.99.
