It’s the Periodic Table’s 150th birthday and we’re ready to celebrate by exploring the elements! Who invented the table? And will we ever know if all the elements have been found?

Find out which tiny village has four elements named after it, what the rarest elements on earth are and how to make brand new ones. Ever wondered which scientist discovered the most elements or where all of the elements in the human body come from? Find out this and much, much more! Our ensemble of scientists – including Dr Karl Kruszelnicki, Adam Spencer and Dr Alice Motion – uncover weird and wonderful tales of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements.

Join us for an entertaining night of science and get up close with the chemical elements to celebrate the International Year of the Periodic Table this National Science Week.
