As If By Magic! A Spectacular Chemistry Demonstration Lecture

3 November 2016 19:00-20:30, Cambridge, United Kingdom

If you were able to make a substance change colour, or turn from a solid to a liquid, would that be magic? From a liquid that boils at room temperature to gases that are heavier than air, join Dr Szydlo as he explores magical molecules and enchanting elements in this family event full of practical demonstrations of the magic of Chemistry. He will dazzle, entertain and educate his audience with a series of spectacular science demonstrations. The reactions themselves will be audibly and visually spectacular, but the fundamental purpose will be to explain the science behind the effects.
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.
Free admission. No tickets – so come early to get a good seat. Doors open at 18:30.
Please contact organisers if you are bringing a large party (>10).
