A Lego periodic table?

Not quite sure how I feel about this, but there are those interested in a Lego periodic table. Vote for it here. (ht friend of the blog Philip Skinner)

(I would honestly be much more interested in a Lego version of a standard organic chemistry molecular model set. That'd be a lot more interesting to me.) 


  1. I like it. It would be great for labs that give tours to the general public.

  2. This comment has been removed by the author.

  3. Agreed. It is actually rather cute. The only irony would be perhaps the propensity of the periodic table to dissolve in e.g. MC or toluene.

    Let Legos be Legos. There are already several good molecular model sets available. I even purchased extra tetrahedral and trigonal planar C atoms, as well as sp2 bonds, for the HGS ones from Japan.
