Chemistry Club: All About the Elements of the Periodic Table
In this ongoing class, we will look at the discovery of elements, their uses, and where elements get their names including important scientists from history, mythology, interesting minerals, and places of their discovery. #academic
The periodic table. It hangs in nearly every science classroom. It's printed on shirts, shower curtains, posters, and socks. But what do you REALLY know about those 118 elements? In this class, students will get a chance to learn about every element on the periodic table- its name, properties, uses, the origin of its name, as well as any other interesting facts about it.

I am a certified chemistry teacher (grades 7-12) with almost two decades of teaching experience. I have 7 years of experience in the high school classroom and over two years of experience teaching online through Outschool. I have also done private tutoring at the high school and college level, taught freshman college chemistry recitations and labs, and worked in various science outreach settings including museums, middle school after school science programs, and science summer camps. From these experiences, I have worked with a lot of different types of learners at various stages of interest, ability, and motivation- from preschoolers wide-eyed at everything in science to high school students simply taking the class as a requirement to college freshmen chemistry majors passionate about the course with never ending questions. I can tailor my teaching style to fit the learner, and I do what I can to make it approachable by anyone.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
All course content (slides and handouts) are created by the instructor.
