Dr Ashworth works his Kitchen Chemistry magic again!

UEA's Dr Stephen H. Ashworth, who calls himself 'The Kitchen Chemist' is performing his Kitchen Chemistry science show as part of the the Royal Institution's holiday programme today (29th October). It is a great honour for him to be presenting a show at the home of the demonstration lecture. Dr Ashworth said "It is extremely exciting to be following, quite literally, in the footsteps of Michael Faraday".

The Kitchen Chemistry Outreach Project developed in partnership with Scifest Africa from a simple science show.  The show uses unsophisticated equipment and materials to illustrate chemical principles which are cheap and easy to find in local stores and pharmacies.  See the video below for a taster and click here for the official Kitchen Chemistry website.
