How I Learned to Love Chemistry (Or Watch Dr. Laude Blow Stuff Up)

On Friday, September 12, 7:00 PM Central, Dr. David Laude will present "How I Learned to Love Chemistry (Or Watch Dr. Laude Blow Stuff Up)."

Chemistry is easy. Dr. Laude is tired of everyone taking three steps back every time he tells them that he is a chemist. He will demonstrate how a few simple, recurring ideas in chemistry can help you understand concepts like climate change, how batteries work, and how food is made. Dr. Laude will also create explosions and cap your evening by making liquid nitrogen ice cream for everyone.

The talk will be presented live on the campus of UT-Austin at Welch Hall in Auditorium 2.224 (WEL2.224) from 7:00 PM to 8:15 PM Central.

The Interactive Fair will also be at Welch (WEL), in the Grand Hallfrom 5:45 PM to 7:00 PM Central. Perform all sorts of chemistry experiments that include fizzing liquids, electric charges, and growing stalagmites. Discover antibiotics through a microscope. Meet an intelligent robot, and plenty of other intelligent people!
