Chemistry in the lab and on the web

2 March 2016 14:30-15:30, Stoke-on-Trent, United Kingdom

The University of Nottingham has collaborated with video journalist Brady Haran to pioneer the use of YouTube for communicating actual science to the widest possible audience. The award-winning, hugely successful “Periodic Table of Videos” (PTOV),, has been running for 7 years and has had 118 million hits from viewers in 200 countries. Viewers range from young children to Nobel Prize winners, and the team have received countless messages of support from fans. But what does it take for science communication to be successful and why is it important to all scientists?
In addition to giving an overview of the project, Sam will describe the Nottingham’s wide-ranging Chemistry research portfolio, and give an insight into life as an undergraduate.

Speaker: Dr Samantha Tang, public awareness scientist; School of Chemistry, University of Nottingham and member of the PTOV team.
