With over 30 years of chemistry experience, I have developed a unique 3D periodic table called the ElemenTree that serves to explain the correlation between the 2-D and 3-D ElemenTree

It is a useful educational and research tool for high school through college level chemistry and affiliated fields.

ElemenTree is a user-friendly, hands-on teaching aid.

The kit contains an ElemenTree model, instruction manual,

and book-size carrying case.

Because of both its aesthetic and pedagogical features, the ElemenTree model can play a strong role in helping to brand chemistry to young and old for the IYC
