About The Event
The periodic table has been a science icon for 150 years. Join Jamie Gallagher on a journey around this iconic classroom poster, travelling from the Iron Age to the edges of our Solar System bringing and the elements to life through explosions, laughs and a few grizzly tales of their secret lives.
