The Language of Chemistry

Do you speak Chemistry?

Listening to two chemists talking to each other might sound Greek to you. Well, chemistry has its own Alphabet, the “Periodic Table of Elements.” Every single element in this table -like with the letters – can form “words.” Chemical words. And then…”sentences”. And then… a whole paragraph or a novel, a book.

In this science ever after project we have lots of fun by creating molecular ”words” on paper. We form molecular ”sentences” in  our test tubes and build our own 3D molecular sculptures! By the end of the event, we read, write, talk and play chemistry fluently. So next time you will meet a chemist, you will know how to say HeLLO!

‘The Language of Chemistry’ is aimed at students aged 7-11.
