Millions of Molecules

 As some people might have gathered from my Nutty Professor post, I like chemistry. So Mum bought me a  molecule construction kit. This morning, armed with the kit and my trusty chemistry textbook, I set out to explore the strange world of molecular bonds. I started with diamonds...and quickly found that I like the molecular structure of diamonds.

Then I found another molecule to build: Methane. It sounds a bit weird to be making methane for fun but oh well.


Ammonia was fun to make. It looks a bit like a little robot.

This one just looks wrong. It wouldn't sit still for the camera so the picture is a little blurry. My Hydrogen Fluoride

So I had a good morning. Making these molecules was a little like playing Lego, except it was educational and Lego isn't.


  1. That sounds like an interesting kit, Charlotte. You make chemistry seem quite fascinating!:-) xx

  2. I quite enjoyed fitting atoms together. I wonder how many other girls my age spend their evenings flipping through a chemistry textbook, hunting for new molecules to put together. Thank you so much for commenting.

  3. Hi Charlotte!
    I have tagged you - please do it!
