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.
