DUBLIN - Perrigo scientists gave a 'big' science lesson to West Michigan families when they unveiled the world's largest periodic table on Saturday.

Officials from the Guinness Book of World Records were present to judge the feat.

The periodic table spread 108 yards across the indoor football field at Grand Valley State University'sKelly Family Sports Center. Perrigo scientists helped build part of the periodic table in their spare time to inspire kids and the community to consider careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering, math). The 118 elements, each measuring 18 by 14 feet, were made out of tarps. Perrigo's scientists collaborated with other area scientists and organizations to put the entire table together. The hope was to inspire kids and families to explore the fields of science.

Julie Samora, a scientist in Perrigo's Analytical Lab, says, 'We want to encourage kids to think about science at an early age and have them engage with it in a fun family friendly way. The more they engage with it, the more likely they are to have it as a lifelong passion.'

The event coincides with the 150th anniversary of the periodic table and was free for the public. The Guinness Book of World Record officials measured the periodic table and will make their final determination within the next several months. The last record holder for the title was India.
