Model Molecular Organic Chemistry Student Set Review

I recently got Model Molecular Organic Chemistry Student Set to review.

Inside it's filled with pieces. 

Set Contents: 

• 1 - Storage Box with Four Compartments
• 22 - White Hydrogen Atoms 
• 14 - Black Carbon Atoms
• 6 - Red Oxygen Atoms 
• 4 - Blue Nitrogen Atoms
• 2 - Yellow Sulfur Atoms
• 4 - Green Halogen Atoms
• 1 - Purple Phosphorus Atom
• 1 - Gray Metal Atom
• 28 - White Small Connectors
• 30 - White Medium Connectors
• 12 - Gray Long Connectors 
• 1 - Molecular Tool (For Disassembly)

It has instructions on the inside of the case that explains the pieces that you need to make different molecular structures. The company also sends a PDF that shows pictures and instructions of things to make. Their website has models on it as well.

Product Highlights:

• The set contains 54 atoms to provide students a visual, hands-on experience for learning chemistry functional groups and molecular structures.

• The durable, high quality plastic atoms are color coded to universal standards.

• Instructions are included on the inside cover to easily identify all of the atoms and connectors included in the set.

• The box contains four compartments for simple storage and organization.

• Molecular tool included to quickly disassemble molecules and atom connectors. I read that some people had trouble getting the pieces apart, but we did not. They were snug, but not difficult to get apart.

Product Description:

The Model Molecular Student Set will bring to life concepts such as chirality, conformations and isomers to help you relate the physical and chemical properties of compounds to their molecular structures.

Get hands on experience with three dimensional topics covered in Organic and General Chemistry courses such as Lewis structures, Newman projections and wedge-dash diagrams. The versatile molecular set accelerates memorization by allowing you to visually create common functional groups such as ketones, aldehydes, alcohols, thiols, amines, aromatics and most other families of organic compounds.


$34.99, but on sale for $23.95.

What We Thought: 

My husband loves this! He asked, "Why can't you give this to me?" Then he thought that Isaak would enjoy this set along with him. Here I thought Mica would love it. Now I don't know who to give it to? It's a fight for this Christmas gift. They all would want it. If you're a regular reader you know my family, who would you give it to? Maybe Santa should just set it on the coffee table with no name. It could be a family gift.
  • It's a Chemistry Set
  • It's an Art Set
In my family we would totally use it to make little marquettes for little sculptures.

Haha I'd give it to the boys to help them learn Science but ya, good idea to leave it as a family gift too to work together as a family on different activities. Good idea on the mini marquettes!

I took two semesters of chemistry in college. In BOTH classes I missed an A by one point. The professors should have given me the A anyway. As it is, I'll probably haunt them with formulas when I die.

It will be very beneficial for kids and they willhave fun learning more about chemistry

That really is a cool set. I'd love to get it for the kids.

I think the whole family should use it together! What a fun way to bond while learning!

I say have it be a family gift.. that way you all can use it :)

I say they should share and have it be a family gift. Who needs labels of who gets it anyway?! With a degrees in nutrition, then nursing, I've had my share of chem. I liked microbiology the best though. Give me a microscope any day!

Maybe you can put a tag on it to the Apel Family from Santa.
