Hidden Elements periodic table trail

Published on 07/10/19

Norwich Science Festival presents a hidden elements trail around Norwich City.

The hunt is on! It’s 150 years since the then known chemical elements were arranged into a table. To celebrate, the Norwich Science Festival have placed posters about the chemical elements around Norwich! Can you track down the hidden elements in our periodic table trail?

A tale of two trails
The City Trail features 23 element posters around Norwich city centre.

Discover how the chemical elements are found all around us and learn how they’re used in different places – you’ll see the city in a completely new light!

The Fringe Trail features 8 element posters on the Norwich Research Park involving its six Park Partners. Find out more about the ground-breaking research taking place there! Head to Centrum for the start of the trail.

Pick up a map from The Forum, discover all the element displays, complete the trails, enter the prize draws and collect a certificate at the Festival between 18–26 October. Plus, come and see the giant periodic table in The Forum!
