Trinity College’s Science Gallery launched an exhibit celebrating the Periodic Table of Elements and the International Year of Chemistry, Elements, on July 15, 2011. The exhibit will be open until September 23, 2011.
GrrlScientist in her August 8, 2011 posting on the Guardian science blogs waxes rhapsodic about the exhibit [ETA Aug. 12, 2011: This is not a review of the exhibit. GrrlScientist notes elsewhere in her post that she has not yet been able to view it. Thank you to Michael Flynn for emphasizing that point. I should have been clearer about it.],
What does an invisible (lead) man, a (dead) man and a revigitator [sic] have in common? POISON? No … They all make an appearance at the hot new ‘Elements’ exhibition that’s on right now at Trinity College Dublin’s Science Gallery in Ireland!
One thing that I especially love about this exhibition (from just watching the videos) is the crowd-sourced periodic table, which the Gallery is building now.
You can see what she means,
I last mentioned Dublin in my April 29, 2011 posting about the city’s upcoming status as Europe’s City of Science 2012 and its self-organized celebration, Dublin City of Science 2012.
