Description

I am creating a learning tool for students to better understand and learn the elements of the periodic table. Visual aids are important for visual learners like me, who need more than words and formulas in order to remember details. Not everyone learns the same way, and my designs will give visual learners an opportunity to see the periodic table in a new way. It is very important for everyone to understand science. One can find a periodic table hanging in any high school chemistry classroom, but no one ever looks at the periodic table with interest in learning about it. How can the periodic table be more than numbers and words? With my illustrations, I am making science more accessible, taking the complex and making it simple and entertaining. My illustrations go beyond numbers and words. I want to be able to entice and intrigue students into learning more about science and being able to easily understand it.
