In this Chemistry session, Stephen Ashworth, Professor of Chemical Physics and Science Communication in the School of Natural Sciences, will run a skills and insight event for students on The Periodic Table – The 7th Row & Beyond.

We will explore how we can use our current understanding of the Periodic Table to predict what we don’t yet know and develop approaches for further discovery, as well as considering alternative ways of looking at the Periodic Table.

The session will develop skills and approaches to support students in their Chemistry studies and future aspirations.

Our events are designed so that a group of students can take part from a classroom or students and teachers can take part as individuals, either from school or from home. This means that sessions will continue irrespective of possible school closures.

As a live, participative event, this session will not be recorded but slides and other resources will be shared after the event, where available.


Suitable for: Year 12 & 13 students (and equivalent) studying, or with a possible interest in studying, Chemistry and related disciplines.

Preparation/Pre-Reading: Students may wish to consider the topic in advance, with respect to challenges they may face or questions they have. Students can also think about questions they have about studying Chemistry at university level.

The IT Setup: The event will be run on Bluejeans (similar to Zoom) and participants will be able to join using laptops, tablets, and mobile devices. If you are joining as a school group, we recommend connecting with one device and projecting on to a whiteboard. You will be able to interact with the university via a microphone and/or typed comments and questions. Full details will be sent to those who have registered (see below) prior to the event.
