Periodic table of elements (AR)


  • To celebrate 150 years of the periodic table ANSTO wanted to create an AR experience that leverages the redesign of their periodic table.
  • Desiging an educational and engaging learning tool that encourages students to learn all about the Periodic Table and it's importance in everyday life.
  • A handful of AR animations to leap out of the device that shows you the real world uses of each element.
  • With a physical ANSTO wall mounted, or pocket sized periodic table, users can understand how useful these elements are to science and industry in the 21st century.


  • Released for the start of National Science Week.
  • The ANSTO XR app is downloadable on iOS and Android.
  • Allows students to explore the elements that ANSTO work with on a daily basis in a fun and exciting way.
  • With the latest AR technology users can use the ANSTO periodic table as a marker which will then come to life with 3D elements popping out of the screen.
  • By clicking on an element, users get to see the protons and neutrons spinning around the nucleus as if it were actually there.
  • Creates a more in-depth learning experience for both student and teacher.
