2019, International Year of the Periodic Table of chemical Elements

In 2017, the General Assembly of the United Nations proclaimed 2019  the International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements (IYPT 2019).

The development of the Periodic Table of chemical Elements, discovered in 1869 by the Russian chemist Dimitri Mendeleev, is considered one of the most significant achievements of Science, which closely links different fields of knowledge such as Astronomy, Chemistry, Physics, Biology and other natural sciences. It is a unique tool that allows scientists to predict the appearance and properties of matter on Earth and in the Universe.

On the occasion of the ephemeris, the Laboratory of time of our school led by our teacher D. Miguel Ángel Fernández has proposed to create an “alive” periodic table  in which each of the 118 elements present in nature are described through videos created by our students, teachers and school staff, which can be viewed by clicking on each of the elements in the table.

The table is still under construction , but you can take a look as its being developed by our students.
