Dr Peter Wothers is (possibly the most well-known) Teaching Fellow at the Department of Chemistry in Cambridge. His IA lecture series has gained significant attention amongst the student population, foremost due to his famous “exploding chicken” experiment. In 2012, he gave the Royal Institution Christmas Lectures, The Modern Alchemist. He is the author of many books, including “Chemical Structure and Reactivity” and “Organic Chemistry”, and has been significantly involved with the Chemistry Olympiad. His talks and lectures are known to have a practical component, so SciSoc is looking forward to be hosting him and his exploding chickens in a phenomenal talk this term.
