In celebration of #IYPT, we created a year-long campaign called #MyFaveElement. It centered around a series of short videos featuring a Berkeley Lab scientist describing their favorite element. One had a personal story of how understanding the structure of carbon triggered a lifelong love of chemistry. We then invited anyone to share a video, poem, or other material about their favorite element. We reached a wide audience, from school children, to millennials, to U.S. members of Congress.
