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.

Added 10/24/2012

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.
