Award winning science communicator from the University of East Anglia (UEA), Professor Stephen Ashworth performed the show at the Pro Chancellor Arts Centre, UBD.

In the spectacular show, he aims to inspire new generations of scientists by demonstrating chemistry in action using familiar, everyday material and unsophisticated equipment. The show was made available to members of the public, particularly students of all ages. "Kitchen Chemistry" is part of a British Council-funded collaboration between UBD and UEA.
