Featured on the App Store "Apps for Learning Chemistry" Oct. 2011, Chem Lab offers high school students a chance to build simple chemical compounds in an approachable game-like environment.
Who knew basic chemistry was such a blast? In Chem Lab, you're presented with name of a randomly chosen chemical compound. Drag elements into the flask to complete the chemical formula. Get it right? You rock! Get it wrong and "BOOM" -- your experiment explodes. Either way, the correct formula is displayed for your review.
Chem Lab's primary focus is on the standard IUPAC nomenclature used in your chemistry classes. For a few well known chemical compounds, a more common name is substituted. Over 60 compounds, both organic and inorganic, are included in the game.
Scores and times are given for each round of 5 compounds so you can track your own progress or challenge your classmates to a match!
What's New in Version 1.4
- more chemical compounds have been added
- updated sound effects with audio optimization for recent iOS versions
Fun to learn
I saw this in science class and had fun from the start. It is really quick to learn how to play. I haven't taken chemistry yet so I find it interesting to learn through experience. I recommend it for anybody interested in chemistry, whether they know a lot of chemistry or not.
Fun 2 learn
I really enjoy this app. Got it to prep for bio course after a decade away from science and I am learning and remembering. Very fun app 4 learning.
Fun and educational.
