To celebrate the 150th anniversary of the periodic table, the School of Chemistry & Chemical Engineering at QUB are hosting a range of interactive demonstrations in the Ulster Museum!
This year the Periodic Table is celebrating its 150th anniversary. The Periodic System was first formulated in 1869 by Dmitri Mendeleev a Russian Chemist and inventor. Over the years it has grown and evolved as new elements have been discovered, and although an icon to many, its design is often a source of much debate. The periodic table is a common language for all science, capturing not just the essence of chemistry, but also physics, medicine and biology.
To celebrate its anniversary, the School of Chemistry & Chemical Engineering at Queen’s University Belfast are hosting a range of interactive demonstrations in the Ulster Museum for children (and adults who want to engage their inner child). Kids will have the opportunity to take part in the hands-on chemistry experiments and quiz our STEM Ambassadors about the experiments.
Live demonstrations will include:-
- Generate Light from a ‘Lemon Battery’!
- Chemical Separation – the Wondrous World of ‘Chromatography’!
- ‘Metal Alloys’- Turn an Old Copper Coin into a Shiny Brass Penny!
- Power from Water – The Magic of ‘Fuel Cells’!
And much more!
