Since Feb 25, 2004

The below areas are not yet developed


Metricopoulos is the city of measurement. "Metric" means "measure" and "poulos" means a group, like a group of people that makes a village or city.

This is where you learn all about measurements including the metric system, of course.



Vulcan was the Roman god of volcanos and forging of metals. (Star Trek followers think of Mr. Spock and his home planet of Vulcan).

This part of ChemistryLand is where you learn about fire and things created by fire, like metals and minerals.



Nanoworld takes you on a journey to the very small. "Nano" is Greek for small and in the metric system means one billionth. At this scale atoms are building blocks and machines are smaller than viruses.


Alchemists Alcove

Alchemy preceded chemistry and even though its goal to convert common metals into gold was misguided, it did develop much fundamental knowledge about chemicals. This part of ChemistryLand looks into the early uses of chemistry from the practical to the magical.



"Vivo" means life and the enclosed dome represents the Earth. This part of ChemistryLand investigates organic and environmental chemistry, biochemistry, chemistry for nursing and first responders, plus chemistry for survival.


Polymer Planet

Polymers (plastics) has given our society a tremendous number of materials that are useful and cheap to make and buy. Nature creates polymers with hair, fur, wool, silk, cotton, starch, and other fibrous materials. Chemists have taken polymers to new levels. Come to Polymer Planet to learn more about how polymers are made and what they can do.


Elementary School

It took a few thousand years but humans finally learned what the world around them was made from. At one time they thought everything was made from water. Later it was water plus air, fire, and earth. Now we know there's more than 100 elements that make up the universe. The Periodic Chart of the Elements gives us a great tool for organizing all the elements that builds the world around us. Just as elementary school got us started in our general education, our chemistry elementary school on elements will get you started with chemistry.


Consumer Caverns

Consumers can get lost in the cavernous amount of products on the market. They have to watch out for substandard and misleading products. This part of ChemistryLand hopes to make everyone a smarter consumer.
