St Josephs term starts with a BANG!

September 28th, 2009 | Posted by Rebecca Walker in Events

Explosions, coloured flames, shattering frozen objects and copious amounts of foam were just some of the spectacular demonstrations witnessed by students and staff.

On Tuesday 22nd September pupils and staff of all ages gathered to watch the lecture "A Pollutants Tale", given by Dr Tim Harrison from Bristol University.  The demonstrations illustrated information about the atmosphere's composition.  They included the properties of liquid Nitrogen, the effects of Carbon Dioxide on solution pH and the combustion of Hydrogen.  All the students and staff enjoyed the informative and humorous lecture.
