About This Quiz

The Periodic Table of Elements is one of the most interesting parts of science that has grown and evolved right alongside mankind's understanding of the world. As far back as philosophers like Aristotle, the idea that the physical things in our world are made up of smaller parts has existed. And basic elements like gold or mercury have been known for centuries.  As our understanding of science grew, and our ability to understand what these elements were and how to differentiate them, we began to identify more and more.  Eventually, the day came when we were actually able to create our own. In 1937, technetium was created, the first man-made element ever made.

We know now that everything that is, is made of elements. The air we breathe, the Earth under our feet, and our feet themselves.  Tiny little microscopic atoms that are mixed together in an incredible strew to create the entire universe. That's pretty awesome when you think about it. These elements are the most common things in the universe and should be boring and mundane. But there's nothing without them, so they're also incredible and worthy of some respect.  And with that in mind, given how important, unique and valuable the elements really are, why don't we find out which one suits you best.  Just take the quiz and see!
