This study was aimed to 1) create a fun materials and programming project during the Covid- 19 pandemic, 2) simulate SC, BCC, and FCC crystallines stuctures’ energy bands, and 3) investigate the obtained energy bands properties. Python was used as the software. The subjects were second year undergraduate students. They were asked to simulate the crsytals’ energy band using the tight-binding formulas. We concluded that 1) materials and programming can be a fun project during the Covid-19 pandemic, 2) the simulations can be done using the Python software, and 3) the larger the lattice constant, the more profiles produced.


Keywords –energy band simulation, crystalline structure, tight-binding formula, Python software.
