EXPLODING ping-pong balls and a generous helping of fireworks are among the spectacles promised at this year’s Christmas Lectures at Warwick University.
The annual science extravaganza, which will feature live experiments and explosions, will cover the topics of ‘energy’ and ‘colour’.
Entitled ‘Pop, Fizz, Bang’, the first of this year’s events will take place on Monday, November 27, at 7pm where energy will be the topic of discussion.
The second event – ‘Red and Yellow and Pink and Green’ – will explore colour on Monday, December 4.
Both events start at 7pm.
Ally Caldecote, who organises the lectures, said: “It’s so important to share the knowledge and enthusiasm we have within the science faculty.
“I am privileged to be surrounded by some of the world’s finest minds.
“I want to share with the public some of the awesome work that gets done here – because it is mind-bogglingly brilliant.”
Tickets for each lecture cost £3.50.
