International Year of the Periodic Table

The Evolving Periodic Table and Its Incredible Elements

Celebrate International Year of the Periodic Table as an American Chemical Society (ACS) national panel of experts lead us in a celebration of one of chemistry’s greatest achievements.

Some things you will learn include:

  • What were the conflicting proposals from around the world for how the elements should be organized and why did our current system rise to the top
  • “Table Trivia” from ACS Reactions
  • How the most recent, super heavy elements were discovered
  • If the Periodic Table has any more room to grow

The event is open to the public so bring your family and friends.
