Did you ever wonder why the periodic table is shaped the way it is, what gives each element its own unique set of properties, or even how elements combine to make everyday objects such as a cup of coffee? With “NOVA Elements,” explore an interactive periodic table, play a game hosted by David Pogue, or watch the two-hour NOVA program, “Hunting the Elements.”
What's New in Version 1.3
This release contains minor content updates to reflect the current names and classifications of elements.

Interesting if you love elements
This app is great for people who need a education or need to know about the elements. I feel like why do teachers not use this when they are teaching science or social studies so the kids get to no more about the elements. But I also think he should talk more about the gold because he only talked about it of ten minutes. He also makes learning fun for kids to learn and actually pay attention instead of passing notes or talking and telling jokes and some kids think about some of them a bit to wrong. So if I were you I would let tryout child watch this.
Great user experience - want more!
This app is so much fun to play and learn with. The interface is beautiful, and the ways in which the user interacts with the content is exciting. I didn't find the videos to be all that entertaining, and for the setting in which I was using the app, I would have preferred reading and viewing infographics over watching a video. I wish the interactive content were more extensive, because it was so enjoyable. Please enhance the app with TONS more molecules to build - that was the best part of the app!
Makes learning fun
My son was 5 when we first watched the Elements. He was changed to a mini scientist, thanks to NOVA. He started telling everyone about electrons, atomic numbers of gold or other elements and importance of Corbin. The video triggered all kinds of activities for us. He has been checking out all sort of science books from library since then. Nova's Element is a great example of how media can be motivating and how science can be fun.
