The Electrochemical Circus

The Electrochemical Circus is a collection of portable, hands-on activities designed to demonstrate key concepts relating to electrodeposition of new materials. Topics covered by the electrochemical circus include: electrochemistry, nanomaterials, materials physics, electronics engineering, and nanofabrication. The Electrochemical Circus is available as a classroom workshop for Key Stages 3-5. In addition, elements of the Electrochemical Circus will be on display at major public engagement activities at the Universities of Southampton, Nottingham and Warwick, and nationally - see our twitter feed for current details.

Activities currently available as part of the electrochemical circus include:

All activities have been chosen to help make science more approachable and hands-on for scientists and non-scientists alike, to give insight into the life of a scientist, and the skills that scientists use every day.
