Our Teaching As Research (TAR) project is a new venture towards assessing the validity of our games. We collaborate with graduate students and professors that take an interest in implementing our games in their classroom and plan to publish the effectiveness of said games. We also look to collaborate with other academics and non-academics on designing board or card games for their classroom with the purpose of motivating, educating, and increasing student's enjoyment in the sciences. 

If you have an idea for a game and wish to collaborate with us, please send us an email at info@dorbitalgames.org

1H NMR (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance) spectroscopy is an advanced chemistry technique used by scientists to identify complex molecules. Students are first introduced to 1H NMR spectroscopy in sophomore organic chemistry. 1H NMR Spectrum is a board game aimed to help students practice and develop their own methods towards solving the identity of molecular structures via 1H NMR spectroscopy. Students will be able to collaborate with others to interpret the 1H NMR spectra of organic molecules. In addition, the goal of this board game is to build a student’s confidence, enjoyment, and teamwork on the topic of 1H NMR Spectroscopy.
