More great Chemistry software for Windows. In the same style and aimed at the same audience, topics include: Chemical elements, compounds and mixtures; atomic structure; ionic bonding; covalent bonding; structure of materials and bond Energies. Pupils can view, on screen, the electron transfers in dozens of ionic compounds and the electron sharing in 12 common covalent compounds. The latest version is for Windows 95/98/ME/XP/NT4 and 2000 (including networks), but a version for Win 3.1 is still available. Free to download and try.

Science Across the
World

Work on Science
projects with schools
across the world.

Rasmol Molecular Viewer
Rasmol is FREE molecular modelling software for Windows. It is particularly good at viewing and rotating protein molecules at speed, although it can also be used with smaller molecules. I use Rasmol with Years 7 to13 (UK); Grades 6-12 in the US.

Science WebQuests - Internet Projects   

The internet is a great resource, but how can Science teachers use it effectively? Browse the web for hours/days/weeks for those great sites? Why do we always want to reinvent the wheel? Someone, somewhere has been there and done it.

Other useful Chemistry/Science
links for students
and teachers

Why not try a  Science WebQuest  with one of your classes?

There are many ready made webquests online, made by teachers all over the world ready for use by teachers everywhere. The hard work of designing an activity and finding suitable weblinks has already been done (they can even be edited to suit your particular needs - see the Acid Rain WebQuest).

Science Across the World              

Interested in linking with other schools around the world?  The Science Across the World  project, sponsored by BP Amoco must be the easiest way - with resources available in 6 languages!

A variety of topic areas are available, including 'What do you Eat', 'Acid Rain', 'Energy in the Home' and many more. The selected unit is investigated your students, and their results shared with other schools around the world, studying the same topic. There are over 1000 participating schools, from across Europe, Australasia, Africa, Asia and North and South America.

Great for enhancing the learning of a foreign language or multicultural awareness through science.

Aimed at 14 - 18 year olds.
