    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:

    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
