Chemistry and Crystals

Are you ready for the next session of Lego lunacy and crafting craziness? If you love chemistry and science then our Chemistry and Crystals event is for you!

When you think of flat screen TVs, interactive phones, laptops and tablets do you ever think of Hull? Without the development of Liquid Crystal Display technology none of these gadgets would have been made possible.

This month we discover how research at the University Hull in the 1970s made LCD technology possible and by doing so changed out visual world! 

For the Lego lovers out there we will be recreating the university labs where this ground breaking research took place and we will be building LCD gadgets. 


We need the creative crafters amongst you to help us make a giant liquid crystal collage by creating your own individual pieces of artwork using photographs of actual liquid crystal.

And this month we also have some special visitors from the University of Hull who will be showing us how to model molecules with their fantastic molecular modelling kits. Our science team will also be on hand to help answer all your chemistry questions!

So join us this Saturday, 6th June, at the Hull History Centre. 

The fun starts at 9.30am but must end at 12.30 – don’t miss out!
