This  chemistry  tutorial video shows the atomic structure meets the Periodic Table. Electrons are wrapped around the nucleus in shells. This video explains this connection,  and  the ramifications it has for the properties of elements.

It is no coincidence that the first shell can accommodate up to 2 electrons,  and  that there are 2 elements in the first row of the Periodic Table,  and  that the second shell can accommodate up to 8 electrons,  and  that there are 8 elements in the second row of the Periodic Table.

About Atomic School:
Atomic School supports the teaching of Atomic Theory to primary school &  science  students .
We provide lesson plans, hands-on classroom resources, demonstration equipment, quizzes  and  a Teacher’s Manual to primary school teachers. Animated videos that clearly explain the scientific ideas supports learning by both teachers  and  students. As a teacher, you don’t have to look anywhere else to implement this program.

Our work has been verified by  science  education researchers at the University of Southern Queensland, Dr Jenny Donovan  and  Dr Carole Haeusler, who confirm that primary students are capable of learning much  more  complex scientific concepts than previously thought,  and  crucially, that they love it. Students run to class!

The program has been trialed in Australian schools as well as schools in the Philippines, Iran  and  India. It is conducted as holiday workshops at the Australian Nuclear Science  and  Technology Organisation, the Queensland Museum as well as the World Science Festival.
It has attracted wide media interest, including TV, radio  and  print,  and  the research data has been presented at prestigious American Education Research Association  and  Australian Science Education Research Association conferences.

Atomic Theory underlies all the other sciences- genetics, electronics, nanotechnology, engineering  and  astronomy- so an early understanding will set them up for a  more  successful learning sequence for all their  science  subjects,  and  support their mastery of mathematics as well. We also have extension programs that cover Biology, Physics  and  Astronomy to an equal depth.

About Ian Stuart (Email: ian.douglas.stuart@gmail.com):
The founder of Atomic School, Ian Stuart, taught Chemistry  and  Physics for 25 years at senior levels before he realized that his 8-year old son, Tom, could understand Atomic Theory at a much deeper level than he expected. After visiting Tom’s class at school, he discovered that his peers could also grasp the abstract scientific concepts, as well as apply it usefully to the real world.

Ian then developed a program to teach the advanced concepts of high school Chemistry, Physics  and  Biology to students 10 years younger than they normally would. He found that this engaged their interest in modern  science  early,  and  sustained it through to high school  and  beyond. It also sets them up for future success in their academic  and  career paths.

Ian has a Bachelor’s Degree in Chemistry from the University of Queensland  and  a Master’s degree in Electrochemistry from the University of Melbourne.

Video transcript:
Electrons are wrapped around the nucleus in shells. It is no coincidence that the first shell can accommodate up to 2 electrons,  and  that there are 2 elements in the first row of the Periodic Table,  and  that the second shell can accommodate up to 8 electrons,  and  that there are 8 elements in the second row of the Periodic Table. This video explains this connection,  and  the ramifications it has for the properties of elements.
Keywords: Electrons, protons, neutrons, electron shells, nuclei, positive, negative, charge, Periodic Table, rows, groups, electron configuration, strong nuclear force, valance electrons, electric force.

Like in the last video, we are going to make different kinds of atoms by putting 10 protons in the nucleus, one at a time. And as we do that, we will place 10 electrons into the electron shells outside the nucleus. Remember that we are simplifying our picture of the atom by not bothering about the neutrons at this stage. We’ll do that later.

In this video , we will also show how the atoms that we make fit into the PT. Let’s see if there is a connection between the number of protons  and  electrons with the PT’s shape?

Adding one proton  and  one electron as we already have makes hydrogen, Atomic Number 1. As we add  more  will build elements with bigger Atomic Numbers.

Thank You very much, helps with my BIO class very easy to understand

Kelly E says:

Thank you for making this so plain and simple. I’m 40 years old back in school and it’s been many years since I’ve done chemistry!!

Whats the name of the song used in this video?

Thomas Alexander says:

Wanna see more,,

about outer shell electron make how element to behave..
Thanks..

2nd row=2nd shell

When can we expect pls??

Mohamed Iqlas says:

Hi sir, eagerly awaiting your next video pls..

Mohamed Iqlas says:

Truly enlightening!! can you pls share link for next topic 6.4???

่ื้Oak NEWMAN says:

By the way can i know your next video that you said in this clip thx you #youarethebest

Vidal Sarwan says:

Question…didnt the last video show an equation to determine the number of electrons on a shell…i think it was 2(nsqd), where n is the shell number. using the equation, for the third shell you would de get electrons on the third shell?

No Name says:

You are the best YouTube teacher lol. I was just checking out people who teaches and you are the only one I found who teaches good.

Angela Jader says:

What's the link of the next video? BTW, thanks! It helped a lot with my chemistry class because my teacher doesn't know how to teach 🙂

Aaliyah miller says:

thank you so much. this really helps me with chemistry class and the tests

Jesse Lewis says:

so…….painfully BORING!!!!

pit coll says:

I have not been to high school and i can now understand a bit better how evrything is build up, thanks for explaning so wel.
