On Tuesday 4th December, a number of 6th formers had a magical lecture with Dr. Plevey and Mrs. Plevey at their talk on ‘Chemistry Magic’ at Birmingham University.
The audience was spellbound by the exciting demonstrations put on involving colourless solutions changing to milk, wine and even gold! We also witnessed water starting a fire, Dr. Plevey losing a finger (although no one was actually hurt in the presenting of this lecture) and glow-in-the-dark beer. The lecture was concluded by a riveting fairytale where Rapunzel’s hair was formed in a beaker.
By the end of the evening, all the girls agreed with Dr. Plevey that ‘Chemistry is fun!’…not that they didn’t think this before…
