Levels: Grades 9-12
Description: Chemikul is an online science/ chemistry-based game that features super-slick ambient graphics and simple acoustics. The goal is to create molecules using all of the atoms floating in the game screen. There are six types of atoms, each with a different amount of “valence” (combining power), ranging from 1 to 6 in strength.
Win the game by using up the valence of each atom. Students need to be as fast as possible. Once the bar at the top of the game screen runs out, the game ends. Students use the computer mouse to make connections between the atoms by holding down the left mouse button and then joining to the other atoms. Users can change the type of atom by clicking on it, but this will cost points.
