All the educational materials come with brief indications explaining which key ideas are being worked on, to whom they are directed (teachers or students) and to what educational stage they correspond (primary, secondary or high school), as well as other methodological recommendations to facilitate their implementation in the classroom.
About the International Yar of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements
2019 is the 150th anniversary since Dmitry Mendeleev
discovered the Periodic System and has been proclaimed the "International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements"
(IYPT2019) (AITP in Catalan).
The initiative for IYPT2019 is supported by the IUPAC in partnership with the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP), European Association for Chemical and Molecular Science (EuCheMS), the International Council for Science (ICSU), International Astronomical Union (IAU), and the International Union of History and Philosophy of Science and Technology (IUHPS). The official website is www.iypt2019.org.
In Catalonia, the initiative is coordinated by the Societat Catalana de Química (SCQ). Nora Ventosa, researcher at ICMAB, is the Vicepresident of the SCQ and has collaborated in this initiative.
The ICMAB is one of the coorganizing entitites, and will participate in the organization of some events at our Institute and in other places.
The activities, educational resources and blog are gathered in the website www.taulaperiodica.cat and in the Twitter account .
