Students struggle to understand Chemistry because of its abstract nature as most of Chemistry takes place on the sub-microscopic level students have no visual or contextual frame of reference in order to build an understanding of chemical phenomena.
Collisions solves this problem by allowing students to visually, conceptually and through digital tactile play interact with the building blocks of matter. Students deepen their understanding of atomic structure, bonding and molecular interactions in a fun and engaging environment.
Collisions is structured to reinforce systems thinking through guided lessons, exploration and investigation with immediate feedback.
Each Collisions game includes: a tutorial to learn how to play, 10 – 15 scaffolded game levels, and an exploratory sandbox with built-in achievements.
There are eight (8) game areas, covering: atoms, ions, covalent bonding, ionic bonding, IMFs, acids and bases, and phase change and equilibrium.
This tool is made by teachers for teachers, and includes free support materials: Teacher Resources, Educator Quick Start Guide, Game Guide, Lesson Plans and dedicated Teacher Portal.
Teachers can use Collisions many ways. Designed as interconnected modules, Collisions can be used flexibly in a remote learning, flipped classroom, to introduce a lesson, and for extra practice or homework.
Teachers can connect their class rosters safely and securely with Google Classroom, Clever Library or via a class code.
