San Antonio attempts world record for largest periodic table

Local graduate and K-12 students worked together to create a 22,000 square foot periodic table at Gus Stadium.

SAN ANTONIO -- The largest periodic table in the world may now be here in San Antonio.

Today, our World Car Sky 4 helicopter was above Gustafson Football Stadium on the northwest side capturing students trying to set a new world record.

Graduate students from the UT Health Science Center worked with more than 100 K-12 students from local schools to create 12 by 15 feet size tarps of all 118 periodic elements. The entire periodic table is more than 22,000 square feet in size.

The joint project is part of Science Fiesta, which is set for Saturday. For more information about Science Fiesta, CLICK HERE.
