A quick, engaging refresher for calculating the charge of an atom represented as qnet. The player matches a target value by adding or subtracting electrons from a spinning atom. Play is scaffolded with an example first, then students are given 6 trials. They explore summing negative charges (electrons) and positive charges (protons), with real-time feedback.
