A spectacular Chemistry lecture with demonstrations. Where does the energy we need to keep us alive come from? Mike Hoyland takes us through some classic chemistry experiments that show how energy is transformed (so the flashes and bangs are not entirely gratuitous!). Find out why it’s correct to say that water boils at 373 degrees, what elephants toothpaste might look like, and what three thousand explosions in less than three seconds would sound like!

Warning: loud bangs, and a barking dog! May contain crisps.

Mike Hoyland started developing Chemistry shows for the public in 2001 when he was Demonstrations Lecturer at the University of Leeds. His challenge was (and still is) to encourage people of all ages, but especially children, to take an active interest in science through his spectacular demonstrations. He has been amazing audiences with his shows ever since!

Event will be held in the BMS Lecture Theatre.

Free and open to all. Suitable for school parties & families. Please contact us if you are bringing a large party (>20). No tickets, so arrive early to get a good seat.

Event organised by RSC Mid-Anglia Section & SCI Cambridge & Great Eastern Region
