Celebrated annually on October 23 from 6:02 a.m. to 6:02 p.m., Mole Day commemorates Avogadro's Number (6.02 x 1023), which is a basic measuring unit in chemistry. Mole Day was created as a way to foster interest in chemistry. Schools around the world celebrate Mole Day with various activities related to chemistry and/or moles. http://www.moleday.org/
This site discusses the concept of stoichiometry. It investigates the processes involved, and provides sample calculations. This site was developed by The Shodor Education Foundation, Inc. in cooperation with the Department of Chemistry, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

This page provides a brief description of some of the scientists and concepts related to Atomic Structure.
This page provides examples and diagrams explaining atomic theory, including isotopes and ions.
The goal of this activity is to construct a carbon atom. You'll start with a hydrogen atom, which contains one proton and one electron. To build other atoms, just add protons, neutrons, and electrons. By the way, you'll need to create each proton and neutron from scratch, using two types of quarks -- up quarks and down quarks. Some friendly advice: Try to keep the atom's overall electrical charge balanced. You'll never complete your atom if you don't.
This page explains the Thomson and Rutherford models of the atom.
This page examines ions, isotopes and the Bohr model of the atom.
This page explores and explains the Bohr model of the atom.

The Why Files portrays science as a critical human endeavor conducted by ordinary people. The Why Files use news and current events as springboards to explore science, health, environment and technology. They cover the details and larger issues of science in an effort to show science as a human enterprise and a way of viewing the world. They describe research results, but their goal is to explain the process, culture and people that shape science.
