Chem Tokens is tool for teaching chemistry by combining augmented reality with physical construction.
The project's design encourages users to understand the basic principles of chemistry by getting them to connect atoms to form molecules. Each 'token' represents an element on the periodic table. Students join tokens to create chemical compounds, which they can then view in augmented reality via a mobile app. This combination of physical pieces and digital visualizations makes the often abstract experience of learning chemistry concrete and personal.
