Dr Alison Hulme and PhD students from the chemistry department joined a host of other scientists this weekend at the Sciennes Science Fair.

The science fair covered a wide range of subject areas; the keynote speaker was Dr Andrew Murray, an extreme athlete, who spoke about his experience running from John O???Groats to the Sahara. Classrooms were taken over by different sciences including neuroscience who were building cells, physics who were looking at bubbles and geosciences who were making edible earths.

In the chemistry room we delivered an ink chromatography experiment along with a selection of our international year of light activities, ???rainbow in a box??? spectroscopes, newton wheels and secret messages.
