The Periodic Table of Videos

While there are many ways to parse out the information found within the periodic table of elements, the University of Nottingham has gone above and beyond with their own novel version. Their version happens to have a short video about each element, and visitors will find each short clip interesting, informative, and fun. Visitors can click on each element as they wish, and they can also learn about some of the presenters who have contributed to this initiative. The "Extras" section contains additional short videos about the chemistry of tea, some holiday specials, and a series of blooper reels. The site is going "global" as well, as a number of the films have captions in different languages, including Spanish, Portuguese, and Indonesian. Praise for the site continues to come from various quarters, including from such personages as Nobel Prize recipient Roald Hoffmann who recently said, "I not only liked it, but loved it...like the best reality show I saw."
