British Science Week: Co Antrim school's quirky stop-motion animated take on the Elements Song

It's certainly one way to remember the periodic table come exam time.

A host of pupils from St Killian's College in Carnlough, Co Antrim have put their own spin on the Elements Song by Tom Lehrer.

The stop-motion video and tune was put together by physics teacher Keely McBride and her pupils as part of British Science Week.

Those without a scientific background might be most familiar with the 1959 track thanks to a performance from the character Sheldon in the Big Bang Theory.

It lists the then 102 chemical elements at the time of writing.

And it marks British Science Week – which runs until March 22. It's a 10-day programme of science, technology, engineering and maths events and activities across the UK.​
