Wednesday is National Periodic Table Day

Leave a comment

Not only is Wednesday our regular yoga day but it is also National Periodic Table Day.

So let’s have some fun with science and learn something new. Coach Mike is giving a prize away to whoever can best describe what element in the periodic table they are and why. Send an email to coachroche@bell.net by midnight on Wednesday and you will be in the contest. Winners announced on Friday morning.

Here is an example (not a great one):

I’m Krypton. An odourless, colourless and tasteless gas. I’m one of the noble gases which gives me a certain regal quality. Only under extreme circumstances do I react as I would rather keep my full valence of electrons. Sharing is not in my nature. Sometimes people confuse me with Kryptonite but that has no krypton in it. Go figure.
