The celebration aroused great interest from both children and their parents, it took place in an interesting interactive form: Russian and Russian-speaking scientists of the international level held scientific workshops and presentations. The event was filled with laboratories and chemical experiments, games. Everyone was delighted. Children have been asking parents about the processes, magic and secrets of chemical reactions!

We would like to remind you that UNESCO declared 2019 as the International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements by Dmitry I. Mendeleev
