The Lost Lectures

An elementary guide to collecting

Max’s talk is an interactive treat on the tenuous relationship between the periodic table, bumblebees (a personal obsession) and Shakespeare’s Sonnets. As well as sharing his passion for collecting, Max’s talk features a beautiful and dangerous chemistry experiment, performed live on stage (The Phosphorus Sun). Thanks goes to Dr Hal Sosabowski and Dave Campbell from Brighton University for safely conducting the demonstration.
