The periodic table is the very symbol of chemistry, its carefully organised list of the elements makes up the very world around us. This year it is 150 years old. To celebrate we’re holding a special dinner! You’ll be amazed at just how many elements crop up during our celebration. 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 dinner parties.
