PERIODIC SUCCESS

September 10 → 5:15 pm6:15 pm

Orkney Theatre, KGS, Kirkwall

There’s antimony, arsenic, aluminum, selenium
And hydrogen and oxygen and nitrogen and rhenium …

… and there are a lot more besides, as Dr Jamie Gallagher takes you on a guided tour of the building blocks that make up the planets, the universe – and us.

“The periodic table has been an emblem of science for over 100 years. Behind this iconic classroom poster live tales of romance, murder, greed and wonder. Which element will make you reek of garlic? Why do we love gold? And what is the disgusting secret of antimony?”

Jamie has travelled the world with his family shows, bringing chemistry to many thousands of people. And if you want to find out some more about the elements, here’s a chance to practice singing your way through the periodic table.
