Chem13 News Periodic Table Design Project

Activity by Richard Vollans   |   added on May 19, 2010   |   Canada Official_iyc_logo

Sponsor(s):

Teachers and educators worldwide can register their students, of any age, for this one-of-a-kind periodic table project combining art and science celebrating IYC. Visit www.chem13news.uwaterloo.ca for submission instructions and how to have your creative interpretation be part of the public art display, poster and website.

Chem13 News Periodic Table has chemistry students from around the world join together to create an original and imaginative version of the periodic table.  Teachers will be the contact and will register their classes for one elemental tile. Teachers at any course level are welcomed to have their classes participate.  Outreach will be through Chem13 News (a magazine designed for chemistry teachers) and its website along with the promotion at Chemical Education conferences. If you are a teacher of chemistry, you are encouraged to have your students get involved in this collaborative project.

Once registered, you determine how your class will design the 6"x6" tile for your chosen element.  It can be a contest, a bonus project, or integral curriculum componenet.  Whichever approach is used, the project should highlight the creative talent of young people in chemistry.

Visit www.chem13news.uwaterloo.ca to read the instructions on how it works, how elements are assigned as well as the rules and guidelines.


Topic: hands-on activities, periodic table, art, celebrating chemistry, chemistry education, elements, classroom activity, learning Audience: general public, students, youth, educators, primary schools, high schools, universities, secondary school students
