Let’s Begin…

The team at periodicvideos has created a TED-Ed Lesson for every element of the periodic table. This one is about seaborgium -- a synthetic element named after the legendary Glenn Seaborg.

Seaborg said he preferred to have an element named after him rather than winning the Nobel Prize. He believed that the former was the best way to be remembered by the students who use the periodic table of elements.
