As we all know, 2019 marks 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). To commemorate this historic year and pay tribute to the glorious discovery of the periodicity of the chemical elements, the New York Local Section will construct a giant three-dimensional Table, approximately 12ft x 10ft x 9ft in size. This large size Periodic Table will be displayed at the New York Hall of Science during the 2019 National Chemistry Week, in conjunction with our annual award-winning Chemistry Spectacular Hands-on Show that is set to take place on Sunday, October 20, 2019. As your Chair, it is my great pleasure to invite you to join the Section in this venture, exploring chemistry, conveying its importance to the public, and celebrating the legacy of science, discovery, innovation, and human collective endeavors in a most diversified and creative way. The Project is sponsored by the New York Local Section and the participation is FREE.
