Metals make up the bulk of the Periodic Table, and show a huge range of interesting behaviours. From watching liquid metals become solid, to seeing solid metals dissolve before your eyes, Andrew will take us on journey through the weird and wonderful ways in which metals behave and react. Expect lots of flashes, smokes and smells, exciting colourful chemistry, and plenty of flames along the way!

Andrew Szydlo is a chemist and secondary school teacher at Highgate School, well-loved by pupils and Ri attendees alike.

This science extravaganza was filmed in the Ri on 2 November 2019.
