An Explosive Tale

Dr. Claire takes us on a fascinating journey into some of chemistry’s greatest advances. From the early understanding of molecules and reactions through to spectroscopy and even to Nobel’s munitions factory, she explains how it’s the extraordinary ability to ‘stand on the shoulders of giants’ that drives our own progress in our understanding of the universe.


Speaker Dr. Claire Benson

Dr Claire Benson is a pyrotechnician, explosives expert and science communicator, who armed with a Bunsen Burner, combustible chemicals and a handful of historical tales uses her explosive expertise to demonstrate advances in fire and explosion science in the 19th Century.
