Funded and organised in partnership with the local Royal Society of Chemistry, this annual lecture runs in both Bolton and Manchester.
The “Ernest Worthington Memorial lectures”, named in honour of Bolton school teacher Ernest Worthington, are held at Bolton School and consist of a Flash Bang Show (one morning and one afternoon slot).
A veritable feast of explosions, rockets, flames and flashes that will grab the attention and educate in equal measures. The lecture will act as a firework display on stage and will lead students through the chemical elements, combustion reactions, use of catalysts and the chemistry of metals. A show not to be missed!
Suitable for all ages (although very young children with sensitive ears might not like the louder explosions).
The lecture places (up to 60 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
