Students can click on an element and read information about it, including the discovery of it and how it is used today, connecting elements and the real world. Also, it contains the latest news about chemistry research, which may draw some interest from students.
It lists the different types of lab reports that exist and how to write each. It is super helpful for students, especially because lab reports are mandated by NY State for the reagents. It will also prepare them well for writing lab reports in college if they choose to take a lab class.

It helps relate chemistry to real life situations. It lists how chemistry both harms and can remedy the problem in the environment.
This site shows transition metal reactions that cannot be or are not available to a high school chemistry classroom. It is helpful for demonstrating the chemical properties of transition metals that make them transition metals. It will make the concepts for concrete for students by seeing it instead of just reading about it.
This website lists chemistry experiments that can be done in a classroom using accessible materials such as eggs or sugar. It will be helpful to demonstrate different chemical concepts in the classroom that are hard to understand from just reading about it. Also, it engages students who normally aren’t interested in chemistry.
