Stirling High School’s mural was officially unveiled in September. At the event, Murray gave a talk to students about the project, giving some insight into the thinking behind many of the representations. The students had the chance to ask Murray questions about the project and his work in computer aided art and design.
The unveiling was also attended by Frank Murray, chairman of the Mid-Scotland local section, who said “the periodic table has already caught the imagination of many of the pupils and is being used as a super visual aid by staff. It is seen as a gateway to the RSC’s all-singing, all-dancing periodic table website”.
Head teacher Paul Cassidy got in touch with us earlier this year to help with the design. “The mural not only transforms the science department from a visual point of view but is being well used to aid learning and teaching”, he says.
The school now has plans for an integrated science and art project for students to create visuals for elements based on their own research.
