Funded and organised in partnership with the local Royal Society of Chemistry, this annual lecture runs in Manchester and Bolton.
The “John Salthouse lecture”, named in honour of former staff member Dr John Salthouse (who toured similar spectacular chemistry demonstration lectures around the country and even around the world) consists of a Flash Bang Show.
An extravaganza of sound and vision that will definitely catch your attention and your enthusiasm. Exciting experiments, featuring sudden colour changes, chemical clocks, fizzes, whizzes, fireworks, flashes, welding, melding, crashes and bangs, give you a basic introduction to the world of atoms, molecules, solids, liquids and gases.
Suitable for all ages (although very young children with sensitive ears might not like the louder explosions).
The lecture places (up to 30 per school) are provided free of charge. If you are not on the mailing list to which details are posted around September each year, please get in touch.
These lectures help to enthuse around 1,000 children per annum with the joys of chemistry.
Duration : approx. 1 hour
