*Online Activities


A number of online games & tutorials on different subjects
The Palaeodetective Game is based on archaeological research carried out at Bristol.  Players deduce the origin of archeological and geological samples using data obtained by several techniques including GC/MS and IRMS. (Knowledge of these techniques is not required). NEW
Professor Jeremy Harvey's Structure and Bonding Website outlines the basic principles behind chemical bonding, and how this explains the observed structure of chemical compounds.

Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre (CCDC) / Newcastle Chemistry Resources

Newcastle Chemistry department has been collaborating with the Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre (CCDC) to develop free teaching and/or learning resources using their free to access internet platform, the WebCSD Free Teaching Subset. This contains over 650 3D molecular structures determined by X-ray crystallography that can be manipulated, measured and viewed in real 3D.

There are over 40 resources covering fundamental topics at both AS & A2 level (or their equivalents) and early years University Chemistry where the capability to view molecular structures in 3D is key to fully understanding the topic.

Each topic has one or more theory sheets and various worksheets with answers which can be used for teaching and/or self-study /revision - please see attached flyer for more details. For further information and to download the resources please go to: http://www.ncl.ac.uk/chemistry/outreach/resources/ccdc/#about
