On the latest episode of the YouTube channel Veritasium, Derek Muller talks about an educational product to help people learn chemistry.  The product is called Snatoms!  This product was created as a hands on way for people to learn about chemistry.  Snatoms are a molecular modeling kit where the atoms snap together magnetically. Kits will include the three most important atoms for life: carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen to make glucose – the basic sugar molecule.  And to create Snatoms!, a Kickstarter campaign was launched!

The Snatoms kit includes six carbon atoms, six oxygen atoms and twelve hydrogen atoms. From these basic building blocks you can build tons of different compounds from water and hydrogen peroxide through to cyclohexane and glucose.  Snatoms allows people of all ages to learn chemistry hands on. By supporting Snatoms, you’ll be funding the production of the best molecular modeling kit from start to finish. If you agree that this is an awesome educational tool that should exist in the world, help him kickstart it and tell your friends!

As of November 13th, this project has raised around $150,000 of their $42,000 goal. This project only has 40 days left to raise as much as it can!  For a pledge of $30, you will get a Snatoms t-shirt.  For a pledge of $42, you will get one Snatoms kit.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/veritasium/snatoms-the-magnetic-molecular-modeling-kit
