I’ve been a fan of Joe Hanson‘s YouTube channel for a long time. It’s Okay to Be Smart covers science topics in fun, interesting, and quirky ways – and the latest video is no exception. It’s a Seussian-themed romp through the periodic table, showing us how each element came to be named. I’m always humbled by the great work of my fellow science communicators. Enjoy!
