Event Details

Newcastle University, in partnership with the RSC Newcastle and North-East Coast Local Section, presents


A Chemistry Demonstration Lecture for RSC Chemistry Week:


"Colourful Chemistry"


Dr Peter Hoare (Newcastle University)


Light is fundamental to life on our planet and the UN International Year of Light in 2015 aimed to showcase not only this but how scientists are developing new and more efficient ways of harnessing the energy from sunlight in a sustainable way for the benefit of mankind.

Similarly, our perception and recognition of colours are also fundamental to both our survival and our enjoyment of modern life.

This lecture will explore some processes in chemistry (& physics) which either produce or use light energy under four themes of "reactions", "combustion", "…escences" and "rates" with lots of colourful and sometimes dramatic demonstrations – with the occasional whoosh and even a few bangs! J

The presenter has a wealth of experience in designing and delivering educational and entertaining chemistry demonstration lectures to audiences aged from 4 to 94 across NE England and sometimes further afield.

There will also be some Newcastle University Street Scientists in attendance for the hour before each lecture to entertain and amaze the audience with their science busking activities!


Two performances:

3.00pm primarily for a block-booked schools audience.

6.00pm for both schools and the general public.
