Environmental Chemistry

Lectures / Olive Schreiner

Join a “show and tell” all about environmental chemistry!

Through a variety of educational and entertaining experiments, learn more about how humans depend on chemistry, and the role chemistry plays in securing a sustainable future. Clean combustion, analysis methods including electric arcs, flame, and simple colour-based testing will be demonstrated as Dr. Ging walks you through environmental zones and the interchange between them. The demonstrations are relevant, interactive and some are rather scary!
