Abstract: Representational competence is a vital capacity in STEM disciplines and students must form strong representational expertise. When translating between highly spatial representations, students can successfully rely on external resources to simplify the process; however, this may come at the expense of producing durable mental representations. Here we introduce a software interface to help chemistry students perform spatially demanding diagram translations. We implicate embodied perspectives for addressing the production of such mental representations.
