Our mission is to create innovative, digital learning technology for students.

We aim to make intuitive learning both accessible and affordable for students everywhere. The initial concepts derive from the founder's decades of teaching college-level chemistry in the small classes of an independent high school. We have taken this unique perspective of pedagogy and transformed it into game-based learning modules.

Interact. Explore. Learn.

Enhance your learning platform with dynamic experiences of STEM content. Guided instruction and embedded assessment through game-inspired interactives.
This Web header is an animated illustration rendered with clean charcoal-colored lines, grey shading, and light green accent colors. It features a large book opened with two students exploring the pages inside it. The right page has a chemical structure made of 8 carbons coming out of the page, turning from a 2D structure to a 3D one, and one of the students observeing the closest carbon. The left page shows a mechanism, and the 2nd student is placing an arrow to complete it. It features a chat bubble to the left of the 2nd student animated in a choppy style, showing how the text is read to the student. The pencil line extends to the left with a squiggly trail that continues into a swooping motion. The line has come alive with illustrations of a flask, magnify glass, DNA, and atom structures all connected by the pencil's trail illustrating how a 2D concept can come alive.

Innovative digital experiences

Alchemie’s Hybridization Explorer is shown with two dots along an axis in the middle of the screen representing two nuclei of atoms, and a menu bar on the side that includes s, p, and d orbitals. One s and two p orbitals are dragged to each dot and the hybridize button is clicked. Four sp3 orbitals are formed on each atom with one from each overlapping with an orbital from the adjacent atom to form a sigma bond. A p orbital is added to each atom and a pi bond forms.
Build models of hybrid and atomic orbitals of a singular atom or between two atoms within a molecule. Simply drag the orbitals you want to combine onto the black dot, click HYBRIDIZE to form hybrid orbitals, and add in any remaining atomic orbitals. Rotating the entire molecule or a single atom aids in visualization of geometries and rotation of bonds. 

For the best experience, use the Hybridization explorer on a computer. Mobile compatibility and accessibility features are coming soon.

Alchemie’s Lewis Structure Explorer is shown with a menu bar on the side that includes a selection of atoms represented by circles. A carbon, oxygen, and two hydrogen atoms are dragged to the center of the screen. As each atom is placed, the electron counter in the top right corner increases by the valence number of the atom. Single bonds are then formed between carbon and the other atoms by clicking on carbon and dragging to each atom. A double bond is formed between carbon and oxygen by clicking on carbon and dragging to oxygen again. Lone pairs of electrons are added to oxygen by dragging from oxygen and releasing in empty space. As each bond and lone pair of electrons are formed, the electron count goes down by two.
An addition mechanism is shown in Alchemie’s 3D Mechanism Explorer. Propene, hydronium, and a water molecule are shown. A red arrow is drawn from the double bond of propene to a hydrogen atom of hydronium, and another arrow is drawn from the hydrogen-oxygen bond of hydronium to the oxygen of hydronium. The button in the top right corner that says push, is pressed and and animations shows a bond forming between carbon 1 of propene and a hydrogen from hydronium and the hydrogen-oxygen bond on hydronium breaking. A new arrow is drawn from the oxygen of water to the carbocation on propane, the push button is clicked, and a bond forms between the oxygen and carbon. A new arrow is then drawn from a water molecule to a hydrogen on the oxygen attached to the carbon, and a second arrow is drawn from the hydrogen-oxygen bond to the oxygen. The push button is clicked and an animation shows a bond forming between oxygen and hydrogen to make hydronium, and the hydrogen-oxygen bond breaking to form a lone pair on the oxygen that is bonded to carbon, resulting in the products of 2-propanol and hydronium.
