How I Use It
This is a learning tool that presented elements and atoms in an interactive format. Students can build atoms or learn about the elements. Zero set up time, but functions/actions of this app can get repetitive for some users.
My Take
The periodic table is something that is hard to present to low-level readers and special needs students. This app does a good job in organizing these things into sections, but concepts are really for at grade level readers.
