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.”

Customer Reviews

My 7yo and 9yo love this!

It's hard to imagine an educational app more fun than this. Might require a bit of adult supervision to get started, but if you go over the instructions on each page, your kids will catch on fast.

Interactive Science

I loved the TV show, and I even showed it to my classes in the past. This app is awesome. The only thing I would change is the size of the font on the Build An Atom page. The atomic number and atomic mass numbers are very tiny. I can see them, but it takes some effort. It would be better to use font size 12 or 14 to emphasize these numbers, since students will need to use them to calculate the number of neutrons.

No more video.

When I first downloaded this app it was great was using it to help teach kids in school and my daughter at home. But the just cut off the video witch cuts off most of the learning potential. It say you can not play video out of the United States but I live in Massachusetts. Fix this and the app will be back to 5 stars.
