Coinciding with Bonfire Night soon approaching, the enthusiastic and engaging science communicator, Dr Andrew Szydlo returns for the Annual Chemistry Demonstration Lecture. This year’s theme will be based around coal. This will be shown with reference to three themes: coal mining, coal as a fuel, and coal as a source of chemicals. Be prepared for some exciting chemistry demonstrations - smokes and smells, colourful displays and flashes - that will ignite your senses.
An enthusiastic and engaging science communicator, Dr Szydlo frequently gives lectures in the UK and has appeared on Channel 4’s TV series That’ll teach ‘em. He is also an expert on the history of alchemy. His book, Water that does not wet hands: The Alchemy of Michael Sendivogius, tells the story of an unfairly forgotten Polish alchemist.
WARNING - There will be smoke, bright flashes and loud bangs!
The lecture is for all ages (>8), but not suitable for those with a nervous disposition.
