Periodic Table Project

To celebrate International  Year of Chemistry in 2011, we asked our readers to sign their students up to create one elemental tile of the periodic table.  Tiles were submitted from all Canadian provinces and territories, 20 US states and 14 different countries.   

Mobile apps, large classroom posters, wall mural and an online interactive periodic table were the end result of this collaborative project. 

Voting has begun: Chem 13 News magazine is running a contest to design tiles for the four newly named elements, nihonium (Nh), moscovium (Mc), tennessine (Ts) and oganesson (Og).  The Final Four designs have been decided and voting for the winners has begun.
