RSC Christmas Lecture: Edible Experiments - a Taste of Chemistry

6 December 2018 19:00-20:00, Bristol, United Kingdom

This festive-season talk is brought to you by the Learn Chemistry Partnership and Bristol & District RSC Local Section. Presented by Dr Joanna Buckley, the RSC Education Coordinator and science communicator from University of Sheffield, Jo tells us:

'I first became interested in food chemistry when a batch of fudge I had prepared tasted spectacularly unpleasant, so I set about investigating what went wrong by applying my background in analytical chemistry to the problem. I have since devised ‘Edible Experiments’; a baker’s dozen of food experiments that explore the chemistry behind certain foods. During the lecture, I will share my passion for food chemistry and answer some significantly silly food-based questions that have kept me awake at night. Prepare your taste buds for some surprising science!'

Arrival from 18:30 for festive refreshments.
