This project was conducted by the National Taiwan Normal University and the Chemical Society Located in Taipei, co-organized by the Taipei Rapid Transit Corporation and School of Science of Taipei City University via the sponsorship of Ministry of Science and Technology and the Taipei City Government Education Bureau. Two painted MRT in Xinyi Line and Bannan Line were designed to celebrate the International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements (IYPT), aiming to use MRT as the stage to promote the purpose of IYPT and science education. Various representations of knowledge and applications of chemical elements were introduced in the form of mosaic art, such as the periodic table, chemical elements, and emerging scientific and technological contents and applications. The painted images were fully covered inside the trains. Also, lottery draws for photos taken inside the painted train were carried out to encourage more engagement by the public. The project was implemented from December 11, 2019, to February 27, 2020, providing Taipei MRT passengers the opportunity to get close to chemistry. During the promotion of the painted train, it was estimated that it reached about 2,651,716 people and was reported in 17 press coverage with high recognition. In addition to stimulating the public's interest and interest in science education, it also innovated new forms of science activities.
