RasMol is free software for looking at molecular structures. You must download a free PDB data file for each molecule you wish to view. It is very fast: rotating a water molecule, protein, or DNA molecule shows its 3D structure. Chime shows molecules like RasMol, but unlike RasMol, Chime shows molecules inside a web page. Chime shows only the molecules written into the web page by its author.

These programs are transforming the ways in which learners visualize atoms and molecules. Additional free-ware programs are becoming available, but Chime and Rasmol remain among the best programs, intuitive and easy to use. Even elementary school children can handle this chllenge. CN3D is another free molecule visualization program that does more, but might be reserved for the more advanced or motivated learners.
The Chime plug-in must be loaded onto school computers so that students will observe molecules in three dimensions when browsing the internet.
