How does science, and chemistry in particular, affect the world around us? Including issues such as energy, food, medicine and climate change?
The quiz is aimed at families with children aged 10 and over, and is for teams of around 4. There will be up to 25 questions, 5 in each round.
Dr Kevin Parker has chemistry degrees from Edinburgh and Cambridge – “where I started my career with a bang by blowing up a laboratory at the University of Cambridge while studying for my PhD”. He worked in the oil industry in the Middle East and then started his own consultancy, assisting new companies start up and helping young people into business.
“Outside work my interests are working with young people (I’m a Cub Scout Leader and a volunteer with the Prince’s Scottish Youth Business Trust), playing folk guitar, and war gaming. I regard myself as being extremely fortunate to be able to make a living doing more or less what I want, and therefore do my best to stay cheerful even in the dark Scottish winters!”
