Design the new elemental tiles for the Periodic Table Project

In 2011, we invited Chem 13 News’ readers to have their students artistically express an element on a 6” x 6” tile for the Periodic Table Project, to celebrate the International Year of Chemistry. If you did not have a chance to participate, here is your opportunity. Have your students research and design a tile for flerovium (Fl) and/or livermorium (Lv). The top entries will be featured in the February issue of Chem 13 News. The top selections will be chosen based on creativity, research and artistic expression.

The winner will be decided by a reader’s vote using Twitter and Facebook. This will be an opportunity for us at Chem 13 News — and many of you — to begin to use Twitter and to see how it can be used as a communication tool. Bill Power (see the article on pages 4-5) will help us set up the Chem13News Twitter account and the voting process. More information about the voting process will follow. The final two tiles will be added to the Periodic Table Project and to its electronic apps.
