I have this email sitting in my “attention” folder (a folder for important emails that I don’t have time to go to right away) for quite some time, yesterday I finally have some time to go to check it out.

It’s about a video series made by a team in Univ of Nottingham, UK and directed by BBC video journalist Brady Haran.  They are quite cool.  They are small video clips illustrating each of the 118 elements.  Besides the usual fact about each element (such as atomic number), each video has interesting stories behind each element and experiments to showcase its physical and chemical properties.

If you haven’t checked out these, maybe you should.  It would be helpful for an introductory chemistry course.

The videos are available at this web site:http://www.periodicvideos.com/, also available on YouTube (www.youtube.com/periodicvideos).
