A fun and intuitive way to learn the Periodic Table of Elements
Elements Kapa is a superhero themed deck of cards, offering a fun and intuitive way for children to learn about the periodic table.
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.
I’ve chosen phosphorus as this month’s Featured Element.
The reason…I am developing a book at the moment (so watch this space), the book is about the elements in our bodies, and in at number 6 is phosphorus. I was researching how certain living organisms glowed in the dark – fireflies in particular, and they made it into the news this week.
Phosphorus is an incredibly important element for our bodies. It is the backbone of your DNA and supplies us with energy packets in the form of ATP (adenosine triphosphate).
