150 YEARS OF THE PERIODIC TABLE
Dmitri Ivanovich Mendeleev was a Russian chemist and inventor. He formulated the Periodic Law, created a farsighted version of the periodic table of elements, and used it to correct the properties of some already discovered elements and also to predict the properties of eight elements yet to be discovered.
Elements Kapa is a fun, educational card game created by Richard and Ruth to help teach the periodic table of elements to their two sons Logan and Harry.
The story begins over 15 years ago, when Richard had an idea for a game to educate children and young adults about the periodic table of elements. The initial drawings / concept was sketched while he was working in Australia.
However, the idea was put on the back burner as life took over. It was often thought about and mentioned but it was only when Richard and Ruth started home schooling their 2 boys that the idea to bring the game to life started to become a reality. Then the hard work began.
Meet The Elements
Where we’ll be appearing next…
I’m really pleased to say that we are going to be returning to Herstmonceux Astronomy Festival, starting on Friday the 30th of August. It was a year ago that we did our first ever trade show with the cards and it went down a treat. We have been invited back but this time we are camping over the weekend and hopefully the weather is going to be fantastic and we’ll be able to do some incredible star gazing. I will be doing my first ever talk in the dome tent all about the elements and their crazy interaction with superheroes. It’s on the Saturday and the Sunday so wish me luck!
Hope to see you there!
