During school many parents are always trying to make their own molecules for High School Chemistry. This is because the molecular set are very expensive.
This post shows the thirteen steps of other ways to create molecules sets for your children than purchasing plastic balls with plastic bonds.
Step 1: The Prentice Hall Molecular Model Set For Organic Chemistry is used by chemistry students in High school and college course work.
Step 2: Fig.1 above and fig.2 below shows the area of the Radial saw that were several cuts were done on a homemade STYROFOAM™ molecules.
Step 7: You could go to a hobby store and purchase STYROFOAM™ balls and use wood toothpicks.
Step 9: Molecular Bond choices: You could be Shultz Pretzel Sticks but the hole in the molecule would have to be larger. The one con is that these break easily but they are delicious for serious snacks.
