4-year-old boy holds record for reciting periodic table

Looking at Babik Jain at the Burstow School playground in Kansas City, Missouri, you never know he’s just become a world record holder. In fact, he said his favorite thing before kindergarten was playing. But that’s not all. Babik can recite the entire periodic table in 1 minute and 20 seconds. This is a world record according to the Global Records and Research Foundation. “Sodium is in salt, magnesium is in apples, and hydrogen and helium are in gas,” Babik said. His parents said he was fascinated by the elements when he was three years old. Now he has world records, trophies and bragging rights. But he said it was still difficult to impress his 4-year-old classmates. “Did your teacher impress? What did she say?” Kelly Eckerman of sister station KMBC asked Babyk. “Congratulations,” he said. Eckermann asked. “Nothing,” he said. Babik said he loves to learn. He has already decided to become a space doctor when he grows up. “If someone gets sick in space, I can help them, and even on earth for those who are sick,” Babik said. Ready to set another world record.
