Beginning chemistry students oftentimes have difficulty imagining life at the molecular level; the concept of electrostatic molecular interactions and the forces behind it are difficult to learn and even harder to visualize. The central focus of this project is to produce a pedagogical tool designed to aid chemistry students in visualizing the behavior of molecules, specifically, intermolecular interactions. This tool will implement a customizable, scientifically accurate simulation with a user friendly interface, suitable for tablets and mobile devices.
