Brighton university science professor promises a blast of a show

Posted On 15 Mar 2011 at 12:07 pm

An explosive science show is being promised at Brighton University tomorrow (Wednesday 16 March) – and anyone can go along.

The free show is open to children and adults as part of National Science and Engineering Week.

Professor Hal Sosabowski, professor of public understanding of science at Brighton, hosts a similar show every Christmas at the Dome.

Tomorrow he will be enlisting the help of students for his experiments, many of which end with a bang.

Other members of staff and students within the Faculty of Science and Engineering will be giving demonstrations before the chemistry show.

They include Dr Ian Watts who will be directing robots to greet guests.

Billed as an evening of chemistry fun, the show will be at the university’s Cockcroft Hall in Lewes Road, Moulsecoomb, starting at 6.30pm.

For more information email stemsussex@brighton.ac.uk or call 01273 644178. 

The event is organised by STEM Sussex, part of the university which works with schools and companies to promote enthusiasm in young people for the STEM subjects of science, technology, engineering and maths.
