NOVA Short | NOVA Elements iPad App
If you ever thought the periodic table was a boring collection of elements that has nothing to do with your life, this app will show you otherwise. "NOVA Elements" lets you explore an interactive periodic table, build the elements, play a game hosted by The New York Times technology correspondent David Pogue, or watch the two-hour NOVA program, "Hunting the Elements." Find out why the periodic table is shaped the way it is, what gives each element its own unique set of properties, and even how elements combine to make everyday objects such as a cup of coffee. Watch NOVA's "Hunting the Elements" on Wednesday, April 4, 2012 at 9pm on PBS. Major funding for "Hunting the Elements" is provided by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. Additional funding for "Hunting the Elements" is provided by the Department of Energy and by the Millicent and Eugene Bell Foundation.
