Produced by Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, NanoSpace Molecularium introduces elementary and middle school students to the properties of atoms and molecules. The NanoSpace Molecularium is a virtual amusement park that students can click through to find free videos, games, and short lessons about atoms and molecules. Students enter the NanoSpace Molecularium through the Hall of Atoms & Molecules. From there they can choose which parts of the amusement park they want to explore. An interactive guide helps educators easily find the NanoSpace content by topic.
