The Ancient Greeks saw the world comprised of four elements – earth, air, fire and water (with philosopher Aristotle throwing in a fifth, aether, for good measure) that were thought to explain the nature and complexity of all matter. Times have changed.

We now have atomic theory, with atoms classified into more than a hundred chemical elements. Yet, echoes of the old theory reverberate to this day and scientists admit we still don’t know everything. Interact with the elements on this magical multi-sensory journey of discovery through an intriguing, immersive digital world in which magic meets alchemy and alchemy meets science. Play, discover and create with your fellow explorers.
