Whacky colour changes, magic disappearing water, blowing up dustbins, clouds of steam, thunder air explosions. Are you ready to fasten your seatbelts and enjoy the ‘explosive’ journey?

In his talk, Andrew aims to promote chemistry as the science of remarkable changes, which are often overlooked yet so important in our everyday life. And he does it brilliantly by performing an incredible series of 25 experiments in 15 minutes, totally amazing the audience (who rewards him with a long and deserved standing ovation)!

Andrew Z. Szydło is an internationally acclaimed chemistry teacher. But he’s definitely not the typical chemistry teacher you would expect…

He holds a PhD in the History and Philosophy of Science from UCL, and is an expert on the history of alchemy (his 1994 book ‘Water Which Does Not Wet Hands’ is considered to be the standard reference work on the Polish alchemist Michael Sendivogius.)

But his polymath spirit extends further: he’s a violin, bugle and accordion player, as well as a professional photographer. Throughout the years Andrew has wowed audiences all around the world with his pyrotechnical approach to teaching and demonstrating chemical sciences on stage and has appeared many times on TV. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

This brings back horrible memories of 11 grade chemistry I had to take to pass the grade. Nothing made sense, I got tutors, teacher help, online assistance and everything, but I could never grasp the concept of the formula make up, the atoms, molecules, how many, the letters, the symbols, the one line vs 2 lines connection of the different chemicals, and that was the first lesson of a very long semester, I failed this grade twice and never passed it. Just couldn't understand it, not to mention l could hardly stay awake while learning about this stuff, it's such a boring thing to learn about for me, it's fun to watch but horrible to learn. Respect to anyone who understands and does this stuff.
