Periodic Table Project Ideas

As we all know that large part of chemistry is about elements. Periodic table plays vital roles in study of these elements. Not only that, but in my opinion Periodic table is one of the most important part of chemistry. This tables contain elements arranged in such a way that properties of these elements are easy to remember and studying element becomes lot easier.

Though project ideas based on periodic tables depend on the age and expertise of student but I will try my best to give you some ideas which will help you in your search.

For School kids:

1) The most basic project you can do as a kid is to draw table or chart either on a paper on a thermocol. Try to make the chart big enough and give enough space to each column so you can add more info at the later stage of development.

2) In this idea about scripting a book about element. It is going to be simple white paper blank drawing book. First you need to select n number of your favorite elements and than you can start writing about each element one by one starting from second page as you will get both sides of pages this way. Also if you want, you can also add index page.

To make this project more interesting try to find out all the information about element like its history, name of scientist who discovered it first, its uses, its atomic number and other properties. Keep it as brief as possible. This will allow you to add more information. The most important thing is pictures, if you can paste some pictures of element itself or of material made by it than it becomes more interesting.

Additional things, you can do is to find out picture of scientist who found it too. This will help you include some human element too.

3) As I was looking for some good topics on this, I found very interesting project on another site home schooling ideas where author suggested to create box with 9 racks. I would like to improvise it bit more like, so now you can do following things:
a) Create a box of 9 columns
b) Give name to each Column, like Hydrogen, Helium etc
c) Try to find object or anything which relates to that element and put that into that column.
d) Color the column of the box same as element color

To make it more interesting you can select elements which you use in your daily life, like plastic which is made of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen etc. You can put it any of your column. This will make your project useful for you too.

4) This idea is almost same as above three but in this case, if you can able to find cartoon characters based on properties of each element, than you can paste them with its element to make the chart more interesting.

Computer Science students:


You can write html pages one is home page and others for all the elements. Home page contains the Periodic table which is hyperlinked to each and every page with link. Element page will have all the information about element and its uses.
