it has been more than 90 years since we have understood that electrons do NOT take trajectories around the nucleus of an atom. Why are we still teaching the Bohr atom which even Bohr knew was wrong? Make an animation of the electron cloud shapes for the simplest elements and how the shapes change with electron energy changes.

This is an excellent visual to show students when explaining different orbitals in an atom. Also shows the opposite direction of spin for each orbital. I wish I had seen this before starting the atoms lesson at school.

Great visual for teaching atoms. It helps to visualize the size difference in atoms due to their number of protons and neutrons. I could have used this the other day in class!
