This is the Molecule Zone, part of I’m a Scientist, Get me out of here.
Here, school students can connect with scientists working in chemistry in March 2021.
I’m a Scientist is an online science enrichment activity, where students can:
- Ask scientists questions
- Chat with them in energetic live chats
- Vote for their favourite to win a £500 prize
Students can take part from home. It’s safe, secure, easy and flexible.
A molecule is the smallest amount of a chemical compound that can exist. They are made up of atoms that are bonded together in a particular form. The image shows a diagram of a glucose (sugar) molecule (it’s not a real picture of a molecule). Glucose contains 6 Carbon atoms (coloured blue), 6 Oxygen atoms (red), and 12 Hydrogen atoms (white).
