A Video View of the Elements

The deadline has passed for entering the Chemical Heritage Foundation's "It's Elemental" video contest, but voting is underway!

In recognition of the2011 International Year of Chemistry, the Chemical Heritage Foundation invited students to submit videos about the elements of the periodic table. Click an element from the chart to see the videos students created—and to learn more about a specific element. You'll find video coverage of familiar and favorite elements, like Hydrogen, Helium, Tungsten, and Phosphorous, but you'll also get a fresh on-the-screen look at elements that might be less familiar, like Tantalum, Cesium, and Rubidium.

Be sure and "vote" for the ones you like!
