Greek philosophers 2000 years ago believed that all beings and matters in the world are composed of four elements: water, air, earth, and fire. In addition to the object’s properties, they attributed the peoples’ mood, and health to the type of these elements’ composition. Due to the scientists’ efforts, from the 17th century till now, we know that all substances are made up of chemical elements. Elements such as carbon, oxygen, sulfur, hydrogen, etc. 150 years ago, Dmitri Mendeleev, a Russian chemist, and teacher, devised the periodic table — a comprehensive system for classifying the chemical elements. These 118 elements play an important role in our daily life and even in the future.

INMOST with a  mission to popularize science among society, for the 150th anniversary of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements, has formed an event called #Jadvaliof for high school students. The students can learn a lot about the importance of the elements in a friendly and happy atmosphere through competition, games, and entertainment. By 4 actors who act in roles of water, air, earth, and fire (4 ancient elements), students will learn about 118 chemical elements. They also can watch movies, play games and compete and in each game, they collect some points (diamonds). The winner who collects most of the diamonds will receive the gift.
