25 Chemistry Experiments in 15 Minutes | Andrew Szydlo | TEDxNewcastle

  • Опубликовано: 14 ноя 2018
  • Whacky colour changes, magic disappearing water, blowing up dustbins, clouds of steam, thunder air explosions. Are you ready to fasten your seatbelts and enjoy the ‘explosive’ journey?
    In his talk, Andrew aims to promote chemistry as the science of remarkable changes, which are often overlooked yet so important in our everyday life. And he does it brilliantly by performing an incredible series of 25 experiments in 15 minutes, totally amazing the audience (who rewards him with a long and deserved standing ovation)!
    Andrew Z. Szydło is an internationally acclaimed chemistry teacher. But he’s definitely not the typical chemistry teacher you would expect…
    He holds a PhD in the History and Philosophy of Science from UCL, and is an expert on the history of alchemy (his 1994 book ‘Water Which Does Not Wet Hands’ is considered to be the standard reference work on the Polish alchemist Michael Sendivogius.)
    But his polymath spirit extends further: he’s a violin, bugle and accordion player, as well as a professional photographer. Throughout the years Andrew has wowed audiences all around the world with his pyrotechnical approach to teaching and demonstrating chemical sciences on stage and has appeared many times on TV. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at www.ted.com/tedx

    To have high intelligence and an advanced scientific mind is a very impressive thing. To be an effective public speaker and have a captivating personality is a very impressive thing. To have all of the above is a bloody rarity! Fantastic talk, thank you!

    I had a very cool chemistry teacher in high school; almost as cool as this professor. If I had one like this in college, I might have passed college chemistry. ...except taking notes in his class might have presented quite a challenge. :)

    I remember my first 3 of chemistry lessons. A prime example of what we did was to mix candy with toothpaste to how it turned from being sour to basic. Then we had to wash it up; lesson over. There was no bangs in my class.

    "Now the reason we have this mushroom cloud in the distance is because a nuclear fission reaction occurring... And you will soon feel a nuclear wind, followed by a rush of gamma radiation which may cause you to be sterile and due to the high exothermic reaction may result in your skin catching fire within a few minutes, so I'm giving you a little warning there... Now, what is nuclear fission? Nuclear fission is when..."
