Wanted portraits of Mendeleev! We need the help of students, educators and chemical enthusiasts from around the world!. We want to create a Mendeleev mosaic as a companion piece to our Timeline of Elements.The University of Waterloo is organizing another collaborative project! Find out more.
Timeline of Elements project update: Elements have been assigned to 118 schools from around the world -- 26 countries! Our goal is to have chemistry students join together to create an original and imaginative version of the Timeline of Elements focused on their discovery.
To celebrate 2011 International Year of Chemistry, we organized a student-designed collaborative The Periodic Table Project. The project was a great success, resulting in a poster, wall mural and free mobile app.
