Periodic Table of Elements

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – An Overland Park boy has set a world record for the fastest recitation of the periodic table by a 4-year-old.

Bhavik Jain is in pre-kindergarten at The Barstow School in Kansas City. On March 16, he recited 118 periodic elements in 1 minute 20 seconds. His new world record was verified by the Global Records & Research Foundation.

“Thanks to his teachers Mrs. Rudman and Mrs. Ning who have always helped Bhavik to be the best he can be,” Bhavik’s dad, Kapil Jain, said.
