Bolton School pupils were joined by pupils from other local
schools as the School hosted a Royal Society of Chemistry Christmas
Lecture entitled 'Chops n All'.
Dr Steven Rossington from the University of Salford led an
investigatory look at the chemical elements that constitute human
life through a series of fun and explosive chemical demonstrations.
The presentation was suitable to all age groups with an interest in
science and pupils from varying year groups from schools
including Oakhill, Sharples School and Derby High attended.
Dr Rossington is a lecturer in biochemistry and chemistry at The
University of Salford. He has previously worked at Manchester and
Liverpool Universities and demonstrates to over 50 schools per
year. The event was supported by BASF chemicals, The Biochemical
Society and The Royal Society of Chemistry who are all sponsors of
Dr Rossington's demonstrations. The lectures are organised by the
Manchester and District local Section of the Royal Society of
Chemistry and supported by the University of Manchester, Manchester
Metropolitan University and the University of Salford.
