ASTOUNDING ELEMENTS: Celebrating the Periodic Table

The College of Sciences; the School of Literature, Media, and Communication; and the Georgia Tech Library invite all to the exhibit ASTOUNDING ELEMENTS: Celebrating the Periodic Table.

Since January, the College of Sciences has been hosting lectures, events, and activities to acknowledge the 150-year-long contribution of the periodic table to science. In collaboration with campus partners, the College of Sciences has brought the periodic table and chemical elements to the attention of the Georgia Tech community and the public through arts, athletics, academics, and fun. ASTOUNDING ELEMENTS brings many of these pieces together, including:

  • Elements in science fiction, in collaboration with the School of Literature, Media, and Communication
  • Periodic table makeover: design and prototypes, in collaboration with the School of Industrial Design, College of Design
