Periodic Quest Championship Tournaments in ChemistryIdea by Ravindran Pulyassary | added on Dec 30, 2010 04:41AM Collaboration
Periodic Quest Card and Board Game for Local and Regional Championship Tournaments in Chemistry among middle and high school students.
Mendeleev’s Periodic Table of Elements represents the complete set of
chemical elements known to mankind that constitutes the building blocks
of matter in the universe as we know it. Periodic Quest is a unique board and
card game of its kind based on the Periodic Table and consists of 118 cards,
each representing an element on the table and a game board composed of
Periodic Tables. Periodic Quest brings Periodic Table out of the class rooms to
kitchen tables and social gatherings and also opens up avenues to facilitate
Periodic Quest Championship Tournaments in Schools and Universities.
Some of the Periodic Quest card games come with interesting twists
introduced through nuclear attacks while some other card games require
creating chemical compounds to win. The explorer board games of
Periodic Quest are for the novice and challenger board games are for the
experienced. Of course, even a novice could play Rummy game using Periodic
Quest cards to make patterns based on periods, groups and blocks on the
Periodic Table. There are more than 8 games suitable for age group 8-Adults.
Being the inventor of the game, I can part a substantial part of the revenue from Periodic Quest to support such tournaments on a regional basis in the US and Canada during the IYC2011 and beyond.
How to incorporate this game to conduct local and regional championship tournaments in chemistry similar to the spelling bee and national geography championship tournaments?
Any suggestion in this context is welcome!
