Abstract colour in liquid

Create and play with colour with chemical engineering student Emily Xu, and chemical biology researcher Helena Dodd. Like many scientists and artists they are fascinated by the chemistry that puts colour into the world around us, from our clothes to our food. And they have a story to share about a Victorian chemist who found fame with a colourful invention he created by accident!

Join them for some hands-on activities you can try at home to experiment and invent with colour and create your own colourful artworks. They want to answer your questions about science and engineering, and help you become a scientist or an engineer too.

This workshop is aimed at children aged 5-12 and their families.

To take partyou will need paper, coloured pens or pencils, and a few household materials. We will let you know all the details before the event.
