DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Chem Tokens

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Educational Tool

INSPIRATION:
The main inspiration was to try to help pupils in school after having the worst experience in chemistry class myself. In high school I started criticizing the school environment and started thinking about how it could be changed. I was constantly bothered by the fact that nothing has changed in this field for quite some time. It is hard to imagine how the world of atoms relates to symbols, how equations written in the textbook are equal to chemical reactions in the real world.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Chem Tokens is an innovative teaching tool that combines the augmented reality with physical experience during chemistry lessons. Tokens design is based on the basic principles of the periodic table. When analyzing them, it is easy to figure out the structure of the table, the uniqueness of each element and physically connect and create molecules. It is all visualized with special app so you can see how do elements look like.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Students are presented with the tokens on a whiteboard for teacher to show how atoms forms into molecules. Or Students are presented with smaller tokens to connect on their own on a table. Also using the app, they are asked to accomplish specific chemical reaction tasks, connect atoms, see visualizations and complete virtual experiments.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in January 2018 in Vilnius Academy of Art, and finished in May 2019 in Vilnius Academy of Art, Vilnius, Lithuania. It was exhibited: in gallery Titanikas, in Vilnius May-July 2018, in Tokyo DesignArt week, Tokyo, Japan in October 2018, in Dubai design week, Global Grad Show, Dubai, United Arab Emirates in November 2018.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
UV print on white Plexiglas and later laser cut. Magnets on the back.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Collection consists of 48 different tokens. Tokens size, form and colour is based on the principles of the periodic table. Each token has different size measurements. Collection can be made in two sizes. In teacher collection the biggest token 111 x 120 x 5 mm, the smallest token 43 x 51 x 5 mm. In students collection the biggest token 65 x 70 x 5 mm, the smallest token 25 x 30 x 5 mm.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The most interesting part of this project was testing Chem Tokens with pupils and teachers. From the very first glance I saw the pupils' eyes brighten. They immediately wanted to grab the tokens and inspect them all under an iPad. I was very surprised by their positive reaction to my virtual lessons, I thought that this generation of children had already seen everything. Perhaps they were most impressed with the fact that this is a game which could be used instead of their textbooks.

CHALLENGE:
The creation of the app was the biggest challenge. The main problem with the project was to create a simple and intuitive learning system design, which originally sounded very simple, but later caused the most headaches.
