Periodic Table of the Elements


























Build a Periodic Table of Elements Mobile
The Periodic Table of Elements Hydrogen Alkali Metals Alkali Earth Metals Transition Metals 1 Transition Metals 2 Metalloids Non Metals Lanthanides Actinides Halogens Noble Gases

To celebrate the International Year of Chemistry at Sci-Enza we have built a mobile consisting of 94 cubes to represent the 94 elements that occur naturally on Earth.
If you would like to build your own mobile, you may download the pdf-files, print  - without scaling - on A4 cardboard, cut, score and assemble. Enjoy!

Learn how to fold paper cranes!
Origami is the traditional Japanese art of paper folding; the word is derived from ori meaning ‘folding’, and kami/gami meaning ‘paper’. Origami is not only fun but has been proven to develop skills such as precision, planning, visualisation and how to follow instructions. It has strong links to mathematics and the arts.
