YouTube walkthrough of MolCraft

Players are introduced to the concept of atoms, molecules, amino acids and proteins through a world populated with molecular structures. 

Exploration is encouraged through a scavenger hunt. On or in each amino acid and protein are hidden chests. To efficiently find the chest players need to make note of the information provided within the world and use to to solve clues and puzzles.

The protein and amino acid areas fit with post-14 curricula. However the world is also appropriate for younger age groups where the concepts of atoms and molecules are being introduced.

A second area is populated with Royal Society of Chemistry landmarks. These represent sites of special interest to chemical sciences in the UK and serves as an extra enrichment activity.

Three quiz books are also hidden around the world along with empty books that students can use to jot down their answers. The topics of the book cover amino acids, proteins and the RSC area.
