What Is Chemistry? Peter Atkins at @McrSciFest Sat 26 Oct 2013 11am

What is chemistry? A free Manchester Science Festival talk.

Sat 26 Oct 2013 11am here in Blackwell’s.

Peter Atkins celebrates this most fundamental science; and in non-technical lay language, he explains its concepts, components and methods.

Most people remember chemistry from their school days as a subject that was largely incomprehensible and full of strange spells, recipes, and rules that seemed removed from the real world. Peter Atkins wants to change all that. If humans had not harnessed chemistry, we would all literally still be living in the Stone Age.

Atkins celebrates the importance of this most fundamental science; and in non-technical lay language, he explains its concepts, components and methods. An essential event for anyone who would like to understand chemistry – fill your mind before lunch.

This event, supported by Oxford University Press, is free and will last an hour. No booking required. For all Manchester Science Festival events at Blackwell’s, click here.
