Quantum of Science

This is a past event from Manchester Science Festival 2017. 

Scientific phenomena have never been quite so… explosive. Join Dr Frank Mair, a world-renowned chemist from the University of Manchester as he takes you on a whistle-stop tour of science and sound. Learn how waviness is the root of magnetism, why quantum physics is so badly behaved and just what it is that makes fireworks quite so fiery. You’ll leave us having discovered the very quantum of science.
