We are Elements of Genius: The Legacy of Chemistry at St Andrews.

We are a student run group at the University of St Andrews who are creating an exhibition that will celebrate the rich history of Chemistry at the university and in the wider Fife area. Our exhibition will feature world renowned chemists, including Nobel Prize winners, major chemical discoveries made by these chemists, the part the department played in both war efforts, as well as the strong links to early photography.

Several events are planned to run alongside this exhibition such as study days and workshops with children.

The exhibition will be held at the Gateway Galleries, North Haugh, St Andrews from 17 March 2011 to 23 May 2011.
