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 Helium as the current Featured Element.
A fascinating gas that you can’t see, taste or smell. It is the most unreactive element in the universe. In fact no other element has ever been able to join on Helium, it is considered noble… and happy by itself.
Helium comes from the Greek word Helios that means sun.
Meet The Elements
Where we’ll be appearing next…
Really happy to say we will be at Herstmonceux Observatory Astronomy Festival next weekend 1-3 September. I’ll be in the trade tent waffling on about Elements. On Saturday and Sunday, I will be in Dome B doing a family-friendly talk about elements and the cool connections that they have with Superheroes.
