The Iranian National Museum of Science and Technology is celebrating the International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements (IYPT2019) by holding an educational event from March 2 to 7.
Entitled “Jadvaleev”, the name of the event is inspired from the Persian word ‘Jadval’ which means ‘table’ in rhyme with ‘Mendeleev’.
The event is organized in nine different stations for visitors of the museum including basic elements of the universe, elements in the earth’s crust, chemical elements of the human body, scales, molecular model toys and games, bingo game, element games, pantomime and periodic table of chemical elements.
The Periodic Table of Chemical Elements is one of the most significant achievements in science, capturing the essence not only of chemistry, but also of physics and biology.
The year 1869 is considered as the year of discovery of the Periodic System by Dmitri Mendeleev. The year 2019 will be the 150th anniversary of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements and has therefore been proclaimed the "International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements (IYPT2019)" by the United Nations General Assembly and UNESCO.
