Making Scents, with Frank Machin
For British Science Week (BSW) 2017 ASCUS is delighted to be hosting a unique art-science workshop; Making Scents with molecular biologist Frank Machin.
Learn about the chemistry of scents, and get insight into the biological signifiance of how small changes in molocules can impact our own health. During this workshop Frank will guide participants through the process of invoking our sense of smell using organic chemistry. Join us in uncovering the wonder behind the creation and experiencing of different scents using chemical reactions. Every tried rotating molecules? How can you mix alcohol and vinegar to create something that smells like a pear? Come along to ASCUS Lab for this unique chance to explore the evocative fifth sense!
