Today, what we see as marvels of modern technology is the norm for young people.  UNB's Dr. Deslongchamps says 3D simulations and "serious games" are emerging as effective tools for learning and practicing skills in chemistry. Serious games are already widely used in the national defence and aerospace industries.

By simulating the methods and strategies for assembling various drug molecules, his game, "Total Synthesis" will help organic chemistry students acquire the knowledge and skills they need for careers in the pharmaceutical industry and other related fields.
