A good introduction to the periodic table for a High school chem class. Some concepts are simplified to the point that you needs to elaborate and clarify in class and it also goes off on tangents, but it holds the attention of students (like no other chem video) and gives a platform of understanding from which to build on.

Not right for school

Sadly, this video is too dumbed-down for high school science. It glosses over too many topics and it gives the wrong impression about how reactions work. Not everything blows up.

A good effort, but falls short. Not even very entertaining.

This how chemistry should be taught to young kids. They would find it interesting instead of boring.

Hunting the Elements

By CC

from Connecticut

Comments about PBS NOVA: Hunting the Elements DVD:

Facts mixed with suppositions about origins of the universe. Interesting trivia. There should be chapters and options to show segments rather than the entire video. It is too long to hold students attention.

Another NOVA winner!

Comments about PBS NOVA: Hunting the Elements DVD:

First, I love David Pogue. In the other NOVA programs he's been in he has made difficult concepts so easy to understand. This show is even better at that. Who knew that the periodic table could be so interesting! This goes into the Christmas stockings of all the kids in my extended family. I may even put one in our fish tank bowl so our pet pirhana will finally undrstand why we have that oxygen bubbler going all the time!
