Silicon is element 14 on the periodic table. Its symbol is Si.
Silicon looks like a metal, but does not do everything a metal does, like conduct electricity very easily. It is a metalloid. Silicon is used a great deal in today'scomputers and virtually every electronic device. Germanium can also be used in computers, but silicon is easier to find.
There is a lot of silicon on the Earth. At the beach, there is silicon in the form of sand. Sand is a compound of silicon known as silicon dioxide or silica.

Silicon also makes up a lot of different rocks and minerals, and they are known as silicates.
