This is what was missing all those years ago in high school: A way to learn the periodic table through something that actually mattered. That is the trick never learned by all educators. Apply the basic skills to whatever matters pop culturally in a student’s life and they’re hooked.

Here, a dianoga, still rooting around garbage systems, introduces us to the Star Wars Universe periodic table implemented at Cloud City Community College. And once the music starts, courtesy of the Kaminoans providing the necessary beats on the instruments, it’s time to learn quickly about nearly every character that the Star Wars universe contains, from Dex at the diner to Darth Vader, Lando Calrissian and Princess Leia. No details here, just names. Plus, for fans’ convenience, the periodic table is properly color coded, separating everyone into the kind that they are. This represents exactly what makes the Star Wars universe worth rooting around in, even if so much time has been spent there already. It’s creations like these that remind us why we are the fans, and why it’s good that the fans put their own creations out for all of us to see. “Star Wars: Elements” makes edjamication fun!
