National Chemistry Week and Elements Poll Winner
  

If you follow me on twitter (I'm @sciencegoddess this name is spelled out in elements courtesy of Theo Gray--try it for yourself), you may be aware that I conducted a poll about my fellow tweeter's favorite elements! I very much want to extend a warm thank you to @chemingineer for this fabulous idea! I even got a little notice by Nature.com for this poll. This video shows the results!

Below is a table of the data collected, arranged by # of votes and then by element number in that group.

My favorite element by name is Tellurium (which also happens to be Theo Gray's favorite name!). By cool features, my favorite is Gallium and by importance to my line of work, my favorite would be Carbon, of course! 

And now, time for some fun, fun, fun videos about the elements!

Don't forget to check out PeriodicVideos on Youtube-excellent source for videos about ALL of the elements

Oxygen- this is about the most adorable video I've ever been introduced to!



This is the promo for Theodore Gray's book The Elements. It includes a beautiful rendition of Tom Lehrer's Periodic Table of Elements Song!



"Chemical Party" is one of the best chemistry videos ever demonstrating how different elements get along. 



If you love science and fun songs to go with it, you are surely aware of the group They Might be Giants.  Here's their song called "Meet the Elements"

I also did a book review of Theo Gray's new book.  If you recall, I posted one about his other book Mad Science! You can see the current review here.

Whew! This was a bit of work, but I am happy to see such a large number of people so excited about science!!

Until next time,

Kindly, Joanne
