Not necessarily a specific thing to go see, but a neat little detour. We ended up there as we got to the Botanical Garden early and had a bit of time to kill before the Art Museum opened. The campus was good to see, and this was an interesting thing to see, tucked away in one of the buildings.

I took my science obsessed nine year old to see the periodic table display (located on the University of Toledo's campus) and it was well worth it. The large display has boxes for each of the elements with items inside made of or related to the element. It is being put together by interested visitor, community members and the university. The display also has a screen near it where you can look up information about each element complete with video demonstrations. The curator was very helpful and enthusiastic to talk about the periodic table with my son. I had contacted her ahead of time and she took time out of her day to tell him stories about some of the different elements in the display. She also let him play with some chunks of Gallium. My son will add to the display by collecting some items for one of the remaining elements. There are still elements available; you can contribute too! They then put a little profile on the webpage about the donor. The curator and university are also open to having school groups visit the display, Facetime with classes, etc. It's a unique opportunity for anyone who is interested in chemistry and it's free! This display would make many a science museum jealous and it's up-to-date with the most recent information.

If your from Toledo or in the area this is a fun exhibit to check out. The elements and how they are used are represented in a life size periodic table. Click on the computer to read some of the history and how people have contributed to the display. Unique and educational it's definitely worth checking out!
