You Don't Have to Be an Einstein to Learn the Periodic Table of Elements

Where were these guys when I was in high school and college? The University of Nottingham has created a couple of resources that will help any STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) instructor.

First, The Periodic Table of Videos  is definitely a modern version of the table as they provide a short video about all 118 elements. They also state that this is just the beginning as they are updating all the videos with new stories, better samples and bigger experiments. They are also making additional films that involve other areas of chemistry as well as being a source of news involving chemistry and adventures away from their lab. I really enjoyed watching the extra videos and they are a great way to learn about science.

If the Periodic Table of Videos weren't enough, they have also created Sixty Symbols, which are videos about the symbols used in physics and astronomy. They also have a link at the bottom of the page where they are in the process of adding sixty more symbols.

You might also check out TestTube by Nottingham Science City. They provide videos that gives you a behind the scenes look into the world of science.
Like I said...WHERE WERE THESE GUYS WHEN I WAS IN HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE? I will guarantee that you can NOT watch just ONE video! Also, thanks to JLa for letting me know about The Periodic Table of Videos! A very cool site indeed!!!  J.T.
