Ursula Lowe and colleagues are knitting and crocheting all 118 elements to tie in with 2019 being the International Year of The Periodic Table (IYPT).

The knitted item will be hung in the college, once it is complete, to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the table.

A host of anniversary events have been organised globally to mark IYPT.

Ursula said: “I was inspired after I went to a lecture at the Cambridge Science Festival given by Yuri Oganessian, a Russian nuclear physicist, who is the only living scientist with an element named after him.”
