The promotional material.
To whom it may concern:
I am a chemistry teacher at Don Bosco Catholic School in Toronto, ON. In previous years, a program co-sponsored by the Canadian Society for Chemistry during National Chemistry Week has allowed me to give students laminated business-sized periodic tables.
I was unaware that this program was so successful until a number of my students returned this year to inform me that they had become interested in pursuing a career in chemistry because of my efforts to give them that they described as "the little extras" that helped them to become successful chemists. One of the reasons I had done this for my students was become one of my teachers had done it for me. To this day I still carry that laminated periodic table in my breast pocket. It not only serve as a fond memory and a right of passage, but also reminds my students of the importance of such a small piece of paper. They are always amazed has much information can be collected in such a small space.
