Fastest Recitation of Periodic Table by the Youngest Girl

Activity by Mahendra pratap Choudhary   |   added on Oct 12, 2011   |   India Official_iyc_logo


Fastest Recitation and Writing of Periodic Table by the Youngest Girl. A 10 year old Girl recites periodic table in 9.38 sec, writes all the symbols in Periodic Table and also recites all symbols H, He, Li........Uuo in 10.24 sec.

My daughter Poorvie Choudhary, 10 year old, studying in Class V at Rajmata Krishna Kumari Girls Public School Jodhpur India has memorized the Periodic Table having 118 elements. She recites the Periodic Table in 9.38 sec and writes all the symbols in Periodic Table. She is the youngest  person to write the complete Periodic table. She also recites the table by the symbols of elements i.e. H, He, Li...........Uuo in just 10.24 sec. She can tell any symbol and name of elements if atomic number is given to her in any arbitrary order. This young talented girl is an example for all the people having interest in Chemistry, specially the school and college going students all over the world.

Topic: chemistry education, demonstrations, competition Audience: students, professors, educators, teachers, research scientists, universities, post graduate students, secondary school students, high schools, school children, secondary schools, secondary schools students
