Public Understanding of Science Lecture

15th November 2018 from 7.00pm


The Magic of Oxygen is all about the weird and wonderful properties of atoms and molecules, and one of the most   important molecules oxygen.  You can expect a few flashes and bangs along the way as some explosive mixtures are conjured up as Mike and Rob entertain you with a light-hearted look at the work of scientists such as Boyle, Newton and Priestley, and recreate some of their experiments in  unusual ways.

Plenty of bizarre and often unpredictable experiments are included, such as:

  • how to find a genie in a teapot
  • how to make toothpaste for an elephant
  • an extraordinary use for marshmallows and
  • how to make fire from water 

A talk by Dr Mike Batham and Dr Rob Janes, from the Chemistry Department at The Open University


Refreshments served from 7pm, lecture starts at 7.30pm.
