Periodic Display of the Elements

This free display is in the Julian Science Center at DePauw University. It is the creation of Max Whitby and Theodore Gray and features actual samples of each element for viewing. They are arranged in the order of the periodic table and include real-life examples -- such as Pepto-Bismol in Bismuth -- as well as the elements in their raw form. Even as a non-chemistry-inclined adult, I enjoyed this. The kids really liked it and spent quite a bit of time studying it. It was a great way to make the elements into something tangible for them.
