My prospective university sent me a periodic table poster with the design for each element contributed by a different school. Needless to say, I’m very proud of the students responsible for Mercury :-)
After being featured on a couple of large science facebook pages, I’ve had lots of inquires about this image. This is an original made by me. It is available as a poster here. Or if you’d rather print it yourself, that’s fine and I can provide you a higher quality image if needed. This image is open for anyone to use, I would just like credit. Feel free to contact me about it.
Added a few more elements cards – up to six now! Working on a page to display them all so everyone can keep up with new ones.
The challenge is finding samples to photograph – the school I teach at doesn’t have a huge range of element samples, and it’s not so easy to find public domain images of many elements online. Still, I’ll tackle that problem when I come to it…
If I can manage to get photos of a fair number (there are some that definitely won’t be possible for), thinking of setting them up as a Kickstarter for people to get their hands on printed sets of them if there’s enough interest.
So just ONE of the awesome things we got to do while visiting thecrashcourse HQ in Montana, was to sit down and chat with Hank Green edwardspoonhands! And yes. He’s as awesome in person as he is on our screens.
Class is in session for our latest lesson on the essential elements of rap! This periodic table of hip-hop’s most tip-top assigns chemical symbols and notates genres, area of origin and debut years for 223 artists. It's sure to be enjoyed far more than periodically.
