This year the top 200 students in the Chem 13 News exam and the Avogadro Exam received a periodic table tile plaque for Outstanding Achievement. We asked winners to upload photos to our online gallery of winners. Here are a few from our online gallery.
In the upcoming school year the exams will be written in May. Students from around the world are welcome to participate in these chemistry contests. Look for more announcements in upcoming issues of Chem 13 News.
Periodic Table Writer
I am sure many chemistry teachers know this, but just in case, the “My Fun Studio” website has a free software program that will write anything you want with tiles of elemental symbols. The program uses some tricks such as bolding the first letter of some of the symbols and using tile for “Q” and “J” absent of data. The program allows you to change font, colour and displayed properties — atomic number, name, weight and electrons. You can download your image for free as a PDF or PNG file. You can also order your design on tons of stuff, such as mobile device cases, greeting cards, T-shirts and coasters. The ordering is done through Zazzle.com.
