Periodic Table of Videos

The University of Nottingham has proven itself worthy in the face of an enormous scientific challenge–making the Periodic Table engaging and fun, as well as useful and informative.

Confession, I was a good chemistry student, but I cannot say I loved the subject. So it is strange that when I discovered the Periodic Table of Videos very early this morning, I ran a little late. At 6 AM, when I should I left for the car, I found myself instead listening to chemists tell intriguing stories about elements and watching them recreate experiments.

Another confession, I kinda find these Nottingham scientists adorable. 

They continue to update their videos with new stories.  But there are only so many elements. So new from Nottingham–Videos about the Symbols of Physics and Astronomy!

Add this to your elements pathfinder right away, or help me build mine.

    I sent this to the Science Team at my high school. The Chemistry teacher is excited to use the videos when she introduces the elements. I too felt this table made chemistry a bit more engaging.
