Event details

Official Opening of the Department of Chemistry Teaching Laboratories

Practical work is the essence of science, and learning science without experiments is like learning literature without reading books.  This talk, which will include some of Sir John Holman's favourite demonstration experiments, will look at the importance of practical work in school science, and at how university outreach can support it.

The talk will be followed by an exhibition and drinks reception at 6pm, and a panel discussion about the challenges and opportunities facing scientists and scientific advances including Professor Lesley Yellowlees, Immediate Past President of the Royal Society of Chemistry at 6.45pm.

Professor Sir John Holman, Senior Education Advisor to the Wellcome Trust
