Project Overview

Working with the Chemical Heritage Foundation, Bluecadet developed a chemical reaction game that fosters learning through scientific experimentation. The ChemCrafter app features retro, custom-illustrated characters and chemical reactions, accented by archival chemistry video clips.

Bluecadet spent over a year conceptualizing, designing, and testing ChemCrafter—including review by a panel of three chemists to ensure accuracy. While the app was tailored to ages 12-15, it has proven to have widespread appeal.

Gamifying Lab Experiments

The app’s Chem-o-convertor measures energy released—allowing you to gain “coins” that unlock new experiments, equipment, and chemicals. You’ll create surprising color changes, encounter fire and smoke, release various gases, and even shatter equipment as your achievements earn you an impressive set of trophy-room badges.
