Reality New York (CNN) --- At this funky middle school in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, pretty much every class period begins this way: "What we're going to do today is play a really cool game." That's Ameer Mourad, a spiky-haired 20-something who teaches a sixth-grade class called "The Way Things Work," which is a blend of science and math. His school, Quest to Learn (also called Q2L or just "Quest"), is one of only two public schools in the United States that bases its curriculum on game theory and game mechanics. On this spring morning, Ameer -- the kids here call teachers by their first names -- didn't spend too much time lecturing students on the topic at hand: the metric system.

The Island of Stability Does a solitary island of stable elements exist at the remotest corner of the periodic table? | iStockphoto/Thinkstock This week’s Fw:Thinking video was about materials with special properties: graphene, carbyne, etc., which are so strong that they could be used to make practically indestructible objects. But I wanted to talk about another kind of material that might have unknown special properties: specifically, superheavy elements within what’s called the “island of stability.” In August of this year, Physical Review Letters accepted a paper describing how researchers led by Dirk Rudolph of Lund University in Sweden used a heavy ion accelerator to confirm the existence of element 115. The substance with atomic number 115 is currently known by the periodic table symbol Uup.
