On Tuesday evening, the 13th November, a group of sixth form girls attended a lecture on ‘Watts New with Clean Energy? Batteries Included’ at Birmingham University.
The lecture was given by Professor Saiful Islam of the University of Bath.
Linking to the underlying theme of Green Chemistry the areas covered were
- Clean energy
- Crystals and modelling
- Fuel cells and
- Lithium batteries.
The audience had great fun looking at three dimensional structures using 3D glasses.
Those present should now be able to answer questions such as ‘Was William Shakespeare a Materials Chemist?’ And ‘Who said “It isn’t easy being green”
