2019 is the International Year of the Periodic Table and 150 years since Mendeleev first published his influential periodic table.
As part of the 2019 Bollington Festival in May 2019, scarecrows depicting the discovery and uses of different chemical elements will form a periodic table science trail. The aim is for local groups or interested individuals to be involved in making around 20 scarecrows. Or more! Mercury and Einsteinium are already ‘bagged’.
Feeling creative and want to make a scarecrow? Due to a successful grant application to the Royal Society of Chemistry, there are funds available for materials to help the scarecrows (and accessories) and to create the downloadable trail map and podcasts.
Anyone interested in being involved in any aspect should contact Lindsay Ness, c/o the Bollington scibar email firstname.lastname@example.org.
