Chemistry teacher and science demonstrations virtuoso Andrew Szydlo is back at the Ri, for an unforgettable evening exploring the exciting world of metals. Metals make up the bulk of the Periodic Table, and show a huge range of interesting behaviours. From watching liquid metals become solid, to seeing solid metals dissolve before your eyes, Andrew will take us on journey through the weird and wonderful ways in which metals behave and react. Expect lots of flashes, smokes and smells, exciting colourful chemistry, and plenty of flames along the way!
Andrew Szydlo is a chemist and secondary school teacher at Highgate School, well-loved by pupils and Ri attendees alike.
He has given public lectures around the country, been featured on TV shows and has become a popular part of the Ri Channel in recent years.
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 into the gallery.
