Students at the University of Hull have populated a Minecraft world with structures of proteins, chemicals and even some chemical history.
Using this world students will learn to:
Differentiate between atoms/elements and compounds/molecules.
Recognize that atoms in molecules are represented by different colors.
Recognize carbon, nitrogen, hydrogen, oxygen and sulfur in a molecular model.
Be aware of the large variety of both artificial and natural molecules.
Understand that proteins are very large molecules constructed from smaller molecules called amino acids.
