—With a new generation of undergraduate students
who are savvy with technologies and computers, coupled with
the advancements in computer hardware and software
development, the learning curve of computational chemistry is
diminishing. We demonstrate various modules that can be used
not only to illustrate the difficult concepts in chemistry
education, but also to provide the hands-on experience that
allow students to generate their own data and conclusions.
