Acids & Bases Game
In the Acids & Bases game, players remove protons from acids and add protons to bases to create target ions and molecules.

Through observing acids as proton donors and bases as proton acceptors, players are introduced to the Bronsted-Lowry definition of acids and bases.
Players can compare strong vs. weak acids by exploring the ‘ease’ of removing a proton. It will be easier to remove a proton from a strong acid than from a weak acid.
In several levels, players will conduct neutralization reactions and create water and a salt.
Covalent Bonding and Acids & Bases
In these connected levels, there are molecules missing from the bank. Players must return to the Covalent Bonding game to build the missing molecules that they need in order to complete the Acids & Bases game.
In the Covalent Bonding game, players will need to build molecules that can behave as an acid and molecules that can behave as a base. These molecules can then be sent through the pipe to be used in the Acids & Bases game.
Players will need to build acids in the Covalent Bonding game that are strong enough to protonate with the energy provided in the Acids & Bases game.
