Graduate students from the UT Health Science Center worked with more than 100 K-12 classrooms from local schools to create 12 by 15 feet size tarps of all 118 periodic elements.
During the grand unveiling event on March 2, school groups, friends, and family members of participants watched as we combined all element squares at Gustafson football stadium to officially break the world record.
The entire periodic table was more than 22,000 square feet in size. To see more photos from the World Periodic Attempt, see http://tiny.cc/worldrecordphotos
