In The Periodic Table Neighbourhood, the action is divided between a condominium meeting of the Periodic Table (Neighbourhood) – in an analogy between element blocks and flat blocks – and a physical chemistry classroom of the 10th grade.
This adaptation allows us to watch, in a fun and constructive way, one of the classroom scenes where chemistry is discussed, current issues are addressed, history is reviewed and opera is sung.
