Ipswich Star: Kitchen Chemistry Show Inspires Youngsters from Suffolk to Hit the Lab

Suffolk school pupils have been treated to an exciting Chemistry show.

More than 200 students from St Mary’s Primary School in Ipswich and The Abbey went to see the show at the Seckford Theatre in Woodbridge. The show was put on by Stephen Ashworth, a reader in the chemistry department at the University of East Anglia. Dr Ashworth has given lectures in science all over the world.

Ambra Calver, Chemistry Teacher and STEM co-ordinator at Woodbridge School, said: “A huge thank you to Dr Ashworth for his fantastic Kitchen Chemistry show. The explosive experiments and interesting demonstrations on household objects left pupils with a real excitement for science.”
