Thunder and Lightning Demonstration Lecture

Nov 02, 2011
Lecture Theatre X1, School of Chemistry, University of Nottingham, University Park, Nottingham, NG7 2RD, UK

The theme of the lecture will be chemical energy, with plenty of it! Whether in the form of light or sound, there will be chemical colours and energetic explosions to enthuse and excite the audience. Some are certainly demonstrations that cannot be performed in a school environment. Therefore, it is necessary to give warning that there will be at least one very loud bang during the lecture. Although it spoils the surprise a little, clear warning is given to the audience in advance of these noises occurring. This lecture is great fun, but we would advise you that it may be unsuitable for those of a nervous disposition or with a heart condition.

The lecture begins at 7pm. Doors open at 6:30pm. No booking is required, but seating is limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Please note that due to the nature and content of this lecture it is not suitable for children under the age of 7.
