NOVA Elements


Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


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.

If you're unable to hear audio, go to your iPad's "Settings" menu and select "General," "Use Side Switch to:," "Mute." Then, turn mute off on the side switch.

Reset works

If you reset the game, from the settings on the intro screen, you CAN reset the table. The labeling should be clearer, and notify the user that its resetting EVERYTHING.

Great education!

My 6 yr old and I have been going through the app this week. We both learning things and I'm amazed at how well she's grasping the concepts thanks to the way it is being taught. Wish we could re-build the elements and even visualize the electron rings since that's what helps the whole periodic table make sense. Game tat videos. It's a shame I won't be able to show them to my nephew who's outside the USA.

Stop whining

Why are you people complaining when you got a free app to enjoy? If you want things your way, pay for it, get a developer write you your own app. For now, don't like delete and move own.
