Smashing the record of an Indian professor, a nine-year-old Pakistani girl has become the youngest in the world to arrange the chemical elements of the periodic table in the shortest possible time.

Natalia Najam, the science enthusiast from Lahore, achieved the Guinness World Records title by arranging the periodic chart in just 2 minutes 42 seconds, breaking the previous record by 7 seconds.

Meanwhile, her father Hasan Najam has revealed that his Natalia has not received formal schooling and has been educated at home.


  • I don’t know, this world record does not seem that impressive to me. Don’t get me wrong the fact that a nine-year-old girl did it in that short of a time is very impressive. But the previous record-holder was an economics or was it a chemistry professor and for them, the time seems pretty unimpressive.
