Let’s Begin…

The team at periodicvideos has created a TED-Ed Lesson for every element of the periodic table. This one is about zinc. We'd like to know what you think -- is it a boring element?

The element was named by the alchemist, Paracelsus, and taken from the German word “Zinke”, which may be derived from the Persian word “sing”, meaning stone.
