The Periodic (Christmas) Dinner Table

1 December 2016 18:30-20:30, London, United Kingdom

The periodic table is the very symbol of chemistry, its carefully organised list of the elements make up the very world around us. And you'd be amazed at just how many of them crop up during a Christmas dinner. During this demo packed show we'll see just how many you can spot. Keep your eyes peeled and tick off the elements that we interact with on your periodic bingo cards. Then afterwards we'll show you how to perform some of our favourite dinner table demos so you can deploy them during festive season parties. 

This public lecture is suitable for all ages.
