From templates, students construct a series of eight boxes which ultimately fit inside one another. Each box is a five piece
cube which pertains to a whole topic on the chemical organization of the elements.
Some cubes are modules for modeling chemical compounds. One box can be arranged as an electron clock cueing the "quantum
addresses" of electrons within atoms.
All eight cubes are hands-on exercises in crafting to specifications which can be used as an instructional "Virtual
Lab" simulation in regard to Following Instructions, Taking Directions, Working Independently, Task Completion, Safety.
The opportunity for verbal instruction during this hands-on construction assignment is a teaching opportunity referred
to as The Interactive Lecture.
