Originally launched in 2012 as a native iOS app, NOVA Elements has been downloaded more than 3 million times and ported to a number of other platforms. Hosted by The New York Times technology correspondent David Pogue, the Elements App challenges users to build David’s “essential elements” (a cup of coffee, t-shirt, DNA, etc.) from the correct combination of subatomic particles, atoms, and molecules. User’s can also explore and construct all of the elements in an interactive periodic table, and stream the two-hour NOVA program “Hunting the Elements”.
