The Timeline of Elements interactive exhibit and Mendeleev Mosaic
Chem 13 News and the Department of Chemistry are excited to announce the unveiling of the final pieces of our Timeline of Elements Project! Both the Timeline of Elements interactive exhibit and the accompanying Mendeleev Mosaic will be highlighted during an official unveiling ceremony on October 26, 2019.

Timeline of Elements Social media blitz: On March 6 we began revealing the element artwork in order of atomic number. We will be tweeting out two elements a day for 59 days. Follow us @chem13news to see each elemental artwork revealed. A happy coincidence — on March 6th, Dmitri Mendeleev’s Periodic Table was announced to the Russian Physicochemical Society in 1869. This issue will be going to print when hydrogen and helium were revealed. All the artwork has been truly amazing Author: Jean Hein, Chem 13 News Editor, University of Waterloo, Ontario

wanted artwork of Mendeleev
Over the holiday break, make sure to encourage your students to delve into some artwork and design an image of Mendeleev. We are asking you to get your students, as well as any chemistry enthusiasts, to create an image of Mendeleev — dimensions as the hexagon tile.
Exciting news! We have expanded the Timeline of Elements project — so there is an opportunity to be a part of this international collaboration to celebrate 2019 International Year of the Periodic Table.
