Sponsor(s): Universidad de los Andes (Colombia)

Students proyects to celebrate IYC 2011. We present the videos and educational materials for dissemination on topics such as atomic models, history of chemistry and quantum chemistry. Student projects were made in class theory of atoms and molecules in Chemistry program at Universidad de los Andes, Bogotá - Colombia

Introduction to the theory of atoms and molecules is a class of the first year Chemistry programme. It has like an objetive that students know the origin of contemporary theories of atomic and molecular structure. Current chemistry is based on these theories.
 The most important thing is to assimilate the foundations of these theories and understand their relationship with the concepts of modern chemistry.

This activitie involves students into celebration of IYC 2011.

Students made videos and educational materials related with topics teached in this class. For example, atomic models, history of chemistry until the quantum theory.
These material are online in the course website:

Topic: celebrating chemistry, chemistry education, educational materials, hands-on activities, website Audience: students, general public, professors, educators, universities, teachers, educational institutions, secondary school students, high schools, secondary schools
