It's History Week here on :tsr: and let's not forget the History of Science!

You've probably all seen a Periodic Table in your science classroom before or in the back of your GCSE chemistry revision guide, but do you know how it came to look like that?

Test your knowledge of its history here: https://renderer.apester.com/interac...0?preview=true

If you are interested on further reading on the History of the Periodic Table, I would recommend the following:

I should probably write that most of the quiz questions were inspired by the relevant section on my EPQ :fyi:

4 I got lucky for some of them :rofl:
All i recognised was:
Mendeleeve (spelt wrong?) - but the question was 'when'...something
Proton number
Meyers leaving gaps+predicting
Number of elements
Law of octaves
Everything else was guesses i think
