Atomic Structure (Historical) Test - A

Welcome to the Electronic Learning Environment for Physical Science. This instrument will test your knowledge of the historical development of the atom and it's scientists. There is a set of flashcards "atomic structure" on the science website called Mitchell's Cosmic Adventure. I wish you well in earning a high grade or just learning new facts!
