The research is based on the development of a 2D molecular builder game for CHEM 120 students. The game allows students to draw and check their structures for a given formula against a database of possible correct structures. The game consists of 8 levels, each based on drawing the maximum possible isomers from a given chemical formula. It is created as a web-based application on React.js. The project shall allow greater liberty and ease to students in drawing structures. In addition, they shall be able to perform self-check for drawn structures which will significantly minimize the assistance required from instructors during classes.


I would like to thank Jeff Hansen for his support and guidance. I would also like to thank the Tenzer Technology Initiative and the J. William Asher and Dorothy A. Asher Endowed Fund in the Social Sciences for funding the research.
