The assembling of the Periodic Table took place on Wednesday, March 2, 2016 at Gustafson Stadium (7001 Culebra Rd, 78238) in San Antonio, Texas. The event was a great success! Thank you to all the science teachers and students who participated!

Our world record attempt is a once in a lifetime opportunity for San Antonio’s local K-12 schools to participate in Science Fiesta 2016 through helping us break the world record for the World’s Largest Periodic Table.

We have partnered with 118 San Antonio school groups (see details below) to help us design and construct the World’s Largest Periodic Table of the Elements. Each school group will be completing one element square with the details of their assigned element. The week leading up to Science Fiesta we will host our grand unveiling event for all school groups, friends, and family members of participants. At our unveiling event we will combine all element squares at a local football stadium (location TBD) to officially break the world record.

Thanks to our sponsors, we are providing our participating schools with all materials necessary to complete their elements squares. These include art supplies and canvas tarps of sufficient size to break the world record. If you would like to contribute, please visit our Donations page.
