The Periodic Table: The Lab’s digital periodic table

Brittany St. Jacques Los Alamos National Laboratory

In 1992, back when we called it the World Wide Web, Los Alamos put the first interactive periodic table of elements on the internet. More than 30 years later, the Lab’s Chemistry division is cooking up an overhaul to its digital table by showcasing how each element — from noble gases like helium to actinides like fermium — are used at the Lab today.

Join special guest Brittany St. Jacques for a special, meta edition of the Periodic Table (so named because participants gather ‘round tables periodically to discuss scientific things) for an in-depth look at this creative project. This month’s event is co-sponsored by the local chapter of the American Chemical Society. 

The Periodic Table is the Bradbury Science Museum’s casual, ask-me-anything program held at projectY cowork. Gather with other science enthusiasts and talk with a special guest Labbie about their unique work. The Periodic Table is always free.

Note: The Periodic Table is now held on the second Monday of each month.

Monday, Jan. 8
5:30-7 p.m.
