The Universe is made of Lego! The elements and the Periodic Table at Primary School LIMITED
Limited Capacity seats available

Actually, there's very little Lego involved! It's 150 years since the development of the periodic table. Although we provide children with maps of what the world looks like, we often hold off before a child experiences this 'map' of the building blocks of the entire universe! Frequently, the periodic table is stuck into the secondary science book with the expectation that they'll just 'get it'. This workshop will try to encourage an elementary (pun intended) understanding of the elements and the periodic table at primary school level. Most definitely NOT for chemistry geeks - but they're welcome too!
