In the custom Biochemistry Literacy for Kids molymod kit, we have expanded the number of atom pieces, compared with the standard student kits, and added pieces that allow students to build bigger, and more interactive models of biomolecules.
Emphasis on hydrogen bonding
The main feature of the custom kit is the inclusion of 2-hold hydrogen pieces and 3D lone pair electron pieces, as well as 4-hole oxygen pieces, which allow a key biochemistry concept, hydrogen bonding, to be properly modeled. Molecules that included these pieces are also very helpful to model acid/base reactions. You can see these pieces in the photos here.
Standard kit option
The molymod MMS-008 Organic Chemistry Student Set is another option, and works great for most of the building exercises in the program. It is available from Amazon and other suppliers. For either the standard or custom option, we recommend one kit per 1-2 students.
BIOCHEMISTRY LITERACY FOR KIDS
Biochemistry Literacy for Kids is a unique learning program that brings comprehensive college science curricula to students beginning in elementary school.
