As part of the process of communicating science, it is always important to keen fun and humour to the forefront. I have always had a fascination with puzzles and the wordsearches here use chemical terms.

Hidden elements
These are a collection of wordsearch puzzles in which are hidden the names of various chemical elements. They can be read up, down, or diagonally but always in a straight line. Names can also be read from left to right or right to left, top downwards or bottom upwards. The initial letters of these elements will then spell out another word to which a clue will be given. I have also composed the puzzle so that every row is made up of a recognisable word or words.
