Return of the modern alchemist: just add water

4 April, 2016 @ 2:30 pm - 3:45 pm

£14

Water is all around us – most of the planet’s surface is covered with it and it is the main ingredient in you. In this exciting demonstration lecture, Peter Wothers, star of the 2012 CHRISTMAS LECTURES, will show you some of the surprising properties and reactions of this substance you thought you knew so well. How can a drop of water start a fire or cause an explosion? Why can’t you put a chip pan fire out with water or boil an egg on Mount Everest?

This is a families event.
