Chem World

Chem World provides an inspiring and hands-on experience of chemistry and its fundamentals. This project allows students to conduct virtual chemistry experiments too dangerous or difficult to run in a classroom.

Chem World contains three interactive experiments - Fireworks, Rocket launch and Macro-Micro.

Chem World also includes a periodic table with crowdsourced content moderated by professional chemists, and artworks created by students, to allow users to discover a broad range of information about chemical elements, their reactions, properties, structures and histories.

Chem World was launched in conjunction with National Science Week at QUT.
