IUPAC PERIODIC TABLE CHALLENGE
IUPAC IS hosting an online quiz about the Periodic Table of the Elements. The online challenge will be aimed at a global audience of young students. Questions about the elements will quiz their knowledge and inform them of the relevant work of IUPAC.

The global challenge is available until the end of 2019.

PERIODIC TABLE OF YOUNGER CHEMISTS
Furthermore, in celebration of the 100th anniversary of IUPAC and the International Year of the Periodic Table, IUPAC and IYCN created a Periodic Table of Younger Chemists. It honors a diverse group of 118 outstanding younger chemists from around the world who in embody the mission and core values of IUPAC.

EYCN PERIODIC TABLE VIDEO COMPETITION
The European Young Chemists’ Network (EYCN) organizes the second edition of the video competition Chemistry Rediscovered in 2019 in honour of the International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements (IYPT2019). For this competition, young chemists (12-35 years old) from all over Europe are invited to send in creative videos of maximum 90 seconds on the theme ‘In Your Element’.

Detailed information about the competition can be found here.

MENDELEEV MOSAIC
Mendeleev Mosaic, a companion project Timeline of Elements project by the University of Waterloo.  Wanted artwork images of Dmitri Mendeleev by students, teachers and all chemistry enthusiast to create one large mosaic of the Father of the Periodic Table.

PERIODIC TABLE IN CROCHET
The School of Sciences of the University of Minho joins the celebrations of 2019 – The International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements decreed by the UN with a series of activities, among them the production of a giant Periodic Table in crochet with more than 15 square meters. This project is coordinated by STOL – Science Through Our Lives (Alexandra Nobre / anobre@bio.uminho.pt)) and involves the active participation of around 80 volunteers from Europe, America and Australia. Once ready, the Periodic Table will be exposed in public space accompanied by the name of all those involved in its execution. More indications will be given in due course.

More information about the periodic Table can be found here.

MAKE YOUR OWN PERIODIC TABLE OF ELEMENTS
In this event, the students will be try to be creative to make a periodic table of elements. There is no limitation for them. They can use every thing to construct the creative periodic table. The tables which fabricated by students will be judge by referee team and will be presented in a festival called “International year of periodic table of elements” in university of Mohaghegh Ardabili, Iran. There is cash award for the winners. This competition encourages chemistry students to be creative for presentation of periodic table.

MARIE CURIE MAGICIAN OF RADIUM
Maria Sklodowska-Curie, world-renowned receiver of two Nobel prizes, discovered two elements with her husband Pierre Curie : polonium and radium. Her life can be told as a legend : French storyteller Elisa Bou invites spectators to discover her life and discoveries,in a pedagogical and poetic tale. Several presentations between February and June of 2019. Event organized at Musée Curie (Institut Curie, member of Université PSL, and CNRS).

ELEMENTS-TERRE
The “Earth elements” video series is broadcast on social networks (Facebook, Youtube) once a week. Each time, it deals with a different element extracted from rocks and minerals. In 2 minutes, minerals, major producing countries but also the industrial uses of these different elements are discussed. Project by Mines ParisTech, member of Université PSL.

BEFORE MENDELEIEV: TABLE GENESIS
Today, the periodic table of elements is an essential tool in chemistry and this year marks its 150th anniversary celebration. A brilliant intuition as he liked to say or the heritage result of the chemists before him: how did Mendeleev come to this classification? How has it imposed itself in the scientific world? The International Year of the Periodic Table of the Chemical Elements is an opportunity for the scientific exhibition at the School of MINES ParisTech, member of Université PSL, to trace back the story of Mendeleev’s precursors, as well as the tremendous human and scientific venture behind this table.

ABOUT CARBON, BY PRIMO LEVI
In the frame of the course  « Sciences et lettres » at ENS, the students have been working on the short story « Carbon » by Primo Levi. This work aims at expressing molecular dynamics in link with reactivity using body languge, music and dance.

MY CHEMICAL ELEMENTS COMPETITION
The Chemical Industries Association, based in the United Kingdom, organizes a competition for school students of all ages to get them thinking about the importance of the periodic table and why the elements are vital to life today.

LES MÉTAUX ET SAINTE CLAIRE DEVILLE
Within this exhibition, we present some of the historical metal samples produced by Henri Sainte Claire Deville (1818-1881) as part of his research activities in the chemistry department at ENS. We focus on a part of the periodic table corresponding to metals only fusible thanks to the use and control of a hydrogen torch developed by Sainte Claire Deville at that time. The exhibition continues on the standard metre, made in a suitable metal, a platinum-iridium alloy, prepared by Sainte Claire Deville for the International Metric Commission then sitting at Paris.

MENDELEEV DANS LES COLLECTIONS DES BIBLIOTHÈQUES SCIENTIFIQUES DE L’ÉCOLE NORMALE SUPÉRIEURE – PSL
Based on an edition of the Principles of Chemistry of 1895, the Experimental Sciences Library and the CAPHÉS Documentation Centre propose to exhibit the works concerning Dmitrij Ivanovič Mendeleev, his life, his work, kept in the École normale supérieure scientific libraries. Particular attention will be paid to the impact of the Periodic Classification of the Elements on the history of chemistry. (7 to 11 october).
