June 2020: Independence Science Unveils the New Accessible Periodic Table, sponsored by the American Chemical Society

Contributed by Robert Jaquiss
Editor of Independence Science Newsletter

Independence Science is pleased to announce the release of our accessible periodic table. This effort was sponsored by the American Chemical Society (ACS). The ACS is the largest membership organization of scientists in the world. It is a United States based non-profit dedicated to supporting the field of chemistry.

This periodic table is used as the official standard for the worldwide ACS National Chemistry Olympiad. The National Chemistry Olympiad competition is a multi-tiered chemistry competition from which the four best competitors go on to represent the United States in the annual International Chemistry Olympiad.

We hope you can make use of this resource in your education and profession.

Independence Science is proud to promote inclusion in the National Chemistry Olympiad by making a more inclusive periodic table for all participants. Find it here:
