An extravaganza of sound and vision that will definitely catch your attention and your enthusiasm. Exciting experiments featuring sudden colour changes, chemical clocks, fizzes, whizzes, fireworks, flashes, welding, melding, crashes and bangs combine to give you a basic introduction to the world of atoms, molecules, solids, liquids and gases, as well as explaining some cutting-edge Manchester research into hydrogen-storage materials, and even a live graphene synthesis. Suitable for all ages (although very young children with sensitive ears might not like the louder explosions).
