The Element Factory

August 12, 2016 Simone Seagle

This multi-touch touch table program, written in C#/.NET 4.5/WPF is installed at the National Museum of Nuclear Science and History in Albuquerque as a practicum project for my degree. The goal was to create an application to browse the periodic table and see examples of the elements. For this project, I did the graphic design and the code. The assets you see are actually spin videos graciously lent to use for use by Theodore Gray.

All of the information about the elements is saved in a google document that is read when the program starts, making it a breeze to update.

In addition to being able to browse and read about all of the elements in the periodic table, visitors can also play a game in which they race against the clock to build common compounds. This game has proven to be very popular with kids and adults!
