Prerequisite: You have an interest in science!
Description: Learn about the chemical elements, where they came from, and how they are arranged on the periodic table. Understand what we know about the structure of atoms, including the “paradox” that these tiny things that make up everything are apparently mostly nothing! Realize that the elements have more than one form. Fortunately, the form of calcium that explodes when it touches water isn’t the same form of calcium that’s in your bones and brain cells. And hear about how scientists almost broke the periodic table, or so they thought, when the neutron was first discovered alongside the protons and electrons inside atoms.
The big ideas you’ll be learning:
- Understanding what atoms and elements are
- Counting the protons, neutrons, and electrons that make up atoms
- Recognizing the different forms of the elements
- Knowing the “big history” of the elements forming from the simplest elements to the biggest and most complex
- Reading the Periodic Table, which isn’t just a list of things to memorize
