Periodic Table


2019 marks the 150th anniversary of the publication of Mendeleev’s Periodic Table of Chemical Elements. The initial discovery, made by Dmitry Mendeleyev in the mid-19th century, has been of inestimable value in the development of chemistry, and a vital learning resource for pupils of the Sciences for over a century. 

Help us celebrate 150 years of the Periodic Table, and sponsor a permanent interactive installation that presents each element in its own carefully curated compartment. As well as containing museum-grade samples of the elements themselves, the individually illuminated cubes in these displays are filled with exciting tableaux of objects and artefacts showing how each element is used in our civilisation as well as relevant minerals and ores.

The interactive Period Table is one of five showpiece items now available for sponsorship. To find out more about sponsorship and naming opportunities, contact:
