If I had a pound for every time some said ‘I hated chemistry at school’, I’d be a very rich man!  Chemistry teachers have the unenviable task of trying to get students to ‘see the unseeable’, which evidently doesn’t come naturally to most of the population.

This talk will attempt to demystify some aspects of the subject, helping the audience to appreciate the value of chemistry in their everyday lives, and hopefully assisting them in understanding some of the chemical principles that govern the world around us.

David Read is Professorial Fellow in Chemical Education at the University of Southampton.
