Event description

Stephen Ashworth returns to the Ri to serve up another helping of the science of the everyday. He will show how normal items can be seen in a new light to illustrate principles of chemistry. Find out what links washing up liquid, a sports drink and the battery in your mobile phone in this second energetic exploration of the chemicals that surround us.

This talk is particularly suitable for ages 7+.
