Periodic Table (Principles): Get the table organized in time
Help Dr. One get the periodic table ready in time! By directly observing the elements’ characteristics, testing their flame color, and investigating trends in atomic properties, your mission is to figure out where a number of fallen out elements belong.

About This Simulation
Light up the elements! In this simulation, you will learn all the fundamental ins and outs of the periodic table. Find out which elements have metallic characteristics, perform a flame test, and explore trends in atomic properties among the main groups and periods.
A broken table
The periodic table is an amazing tool for getting an overview of all the elements in existence, even the elements that only exist when we create them ourselves. But the table in this virtual lab lab is broken; some of the elements have fallen out, and it’s your mission to figure out where they belong by investigating their characteristics and properties.
Flame color test and atomic properties
To sort the first few elements in the table you can observe their flame colors. You may need to use your knowledge about element classes as well to get the full overview.
There are surprisingly many atomic properties for which trends can be observed via the periodic table. Moving on to the virtual holo-table, you will investigate these trends and deduct how they behave when you move within and between periods and groups of the table. You will need this knowledge to assign the most tricky fallen-out elements.
Become the teacher
At the end of the simulation, a special visitor will be coming by the lab, and she needs you to help her understand the basics of the periodic table.
Will you be able to grasp the periodic table well enough to explain it to the visitor?
