Event Summary:

Thursday 2 July 2015 starting at 1:30 pm. (Year 9 and Year 10) MAGIC MOLECULES: THE MAGIC OF OXYGEN Exciting Chemistry to delight and fascinate the young audience of future Chemists.

Full Event Details:

The Magic of Oxygen is all about the weird and wonderful properties of atoms and molecules, and one of the most important molecules is oxygen. You can expect a few flashes and bangs along the way as some explosive mixtures are conjured up as our presenters entertain you with a light-hearted look at the work of scientists such as Boyle, Newton and Priestley, and recreate some of their experiments in unusual ways.

Plenty of bizarre and often unpredictable experiments are included, such as

• How to find a genie in a teapot

• How to make toothpaste for an elephant

• An extraordinary use for marshmallows, and

• How to make fire from water.

Dr Mike Batham and Dr Rob Janes, Open University. Year 9 & 10 Lecture Demonstration.
