The NOVA Elements app, and accompanying app to the “Hunting the Elements” show that aired on PBS, goes beyond simply offering access to chapters of the show on-the-go. In addition to being able to watch “Hunting the Elements,” users get to explore the interactive periodic table and play the “essential elements” game that are both included in the app. With regards to the periodic table, it is nicely designed and provides an image (as well as a description) of each element upon selection. The game has users construct (from the atomic and subatomic levels) the major molecules that comprise some common items, such as bananas, DNA, and coffee. Overall the app is beautiful to look at and includes a great deal of educational information.
