"The Elements of the Periodic Table" International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements Science Demonstration Lecture Series
The Periodic Table of Chemical Elements is one of the most significant achievements in science, capturing the essence not only of chemistry, but also of physics and biology. The year 2019 marks the 150th anniversary of its creation by Russian scientist Dmitry Ivanovich Mendeleev. The Year was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly as "International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements 2019" (IYPT2019). To support IYPT2019, Hong Kong Science Museum has invited Prof. Jason Chan, Assistant Professor of Science Education from the Department of Chemistry at The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, to perform a series of extraordinary science demonstration, namely "The Elements of the Periodic Table". In the demonstration, he will showcase spectacular experiments and unique element samples, by which you will be taken into the world of the elements to explore their individual properties and listen to their fascinating stories.
