Event description

Chemistry can start to get rather strange when you work at the very tiny scale of cells and molecules. Nanochemist and science communicator Suze Kundu will take us on an exciting journey through the world of nanoscience, from capturing sunlight to developing the fuels and materials of the future.

This event is particularly suitable for ages 7+

About the speaker

Dr Suze Kundu is a Teaching Fellow at the University of Surrey's Chemical and Process Engineering Department. Although her research area is functional nanomaterials, as a science communicator she is able to delve into the wider applications of chemistry, physics and materials science and engineering all around us, and loves sharing this through live lectures, on TV (Discovery Channel) and radio.


The doors will open at approximately 5.30pm, with a prompt start at 6.00pm. There will be time for questions after the talk.

Latecomers will be admitted to the gallery.
