Hilliard City Schools

students using iPadsSixth grade students at Station recently utilized their iPads to learn in a more hands on way, about the elements. The concept that elements are a substance composed of a single kind of atom and that compounds are composed of two or more atoms joined chemically with new properties are demonstrated using the Elements 4D app. Students have the ability to combine atoms to make a compound and watch its properties change, all while using their iPads. It’s an amazing way to bring an abstract idea to life!
