Orbital Battleship: A Guessing Game to Reinforce Atomic Structure

Author: Mikhail Kurushkin and Maria Mikhaylenko

Year: 2016


A competitive educational guessing game “Orbital Battleship” which reinforces Madelung’s and Hund’s rules, values of quantum numbers, and understanding of periodicity was designed. The game develops strategic thinking, is not time-consuming, requires minimal preparation and supervision, and is an efficient and fun alternative to more traditional forms of education.
