Essential Elements

Is there an atomic symbol that matches your initials? Would you like to honor your favorite scientists (Curium, Mendelevium)? Are you fond of the planets (Neptunium) or missing your favorite former planet (Plutonium)? Or maybe you want to honor your favorite state, PA (Protactinium)!

We are honoring those who give generously to Discovery Space as our Essential Elements! Contributors are recognized on a unique display of the Periodic Table of Elements which occupies a wall on the exhibit floor of the science center.
