If any Chemistry at Work Organisers are seeking a demonstration and I am available I would be happy to help. I would only ask that the organiser find a demonstrator for my events in return. If I cannot help I could recommend potential contacts.

I can engage the students with a 30 to 45 minute demonstration on Paramagnetism and the Chemistry of Fire – this is often a surprise to the teachers too and the┬ástudents find out for themselves how I personally conducted some simple practical research and where it led. It is suitable for students in Years 6 to 10 and I have conducted a modified version with┬áthe Infants.

I am only too aware of the complications of a demonstrator pulling out at the last minute so would be prepared to be on standby in case needed.

If you are interested, I would be happy to discuss the new RSC funding for events.

You are welcome to contact me.
