A Pollutant’s Tale
Accent Science Club students are looking forward to British Science Weekwhere they will have the opportunity to increase their knowledge of the world we live in. From March 11th to March 20th many schools and organisations will be hosting events and activities relating to science, technology, engineering and maths supported by the British Science Association.
One such event here in Guernsey is “A Pollutants Tale” a lecture and practical demonstration about the structure of the earth’s atmosphere (in comparison with the planets) and its chemical composition, before examining the causes and consequences of global warming and predictions for the future.
This lecture will include lots of exciting demonstrations including explosions designed and presented by Dr Tim Harrison and Professor Dudley Shallcross. A Pollutants Tale will be on March 17 from 1900 to 2030 at Ladies College tickets available from Eventbright.
Saying it with smells
Another terrific event not to be missed is Sarnia Scholars – Saying it with Smells – How Insects Communicate using Chemistry at the St James Concert Hall on 16th March. This interactive lecture by Professor Adam Hart takes you into the world of animals and insects that communicate using chemicals. This will be a great event for our science students. Read more
