IYPT 2019 Public Lecture: Aberdeen

22 November 2019 14:00-15:00, Aberdeen, United Kingdom

In celebration of the International Year of the Periodic Table (IYPT 2019), the Royal Society of Chemistry is organising a series of talks at science centres, universities and other venues across the UK and Republic of Ireland. Aimed at the public and established chemists alike, the IYPT Lectures will feature some of the most exciting science communicators in the field of chemistry, whose talks will bring the periodic table of elements to life.

About the lecture

The Aberdeen edition is titled, 'Periodic Success'. Hidden in the periodic table live tales of romance, murder, greed and wonder. Which element will make you reek of garlic? Why do we love gold? And what is the disgusting secret of antimony? Join material scientist Dr Jamie Gallagher on an interactive and explosive tour of the elemental housing block as we celebrate the 150th birthday of the Periodic Table.

We encourage you to arrive 15 minutes before the advertised start time in order to get a seat. IYPT Lectures are generally timed to last from 40 - 50 minutes.
Attendance at this event is free and does not require registration. Simply come along!
