CHAIN - a chemistry game

While the skills you acquire spending hours with computer games are usually rather useless when it comes to studies and work situations, the new game CHAIN, developed at the University of Oslo, is different. 

By playing, you will learn rules and principles directly applicable in naming and classification of organic molecules in high school chemistry classes as well as in introductory basic and organic chemistry courses at the university level. It is fun, and no previous knowledge of chemistry is required. 

Join the CHAIN! Now in App Store and Google play.


The game is supported in Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer 9.0.
