Glowing Electric Pickle and Gummy Bears in Hell

Gummy bears in hell are part of this year’s traditional Christmas chemistry lecture with Dr. Stephan Leupold, Katharina Schneider, and Anne-Marie Lilje. The show starts at 4 p.m. on Friday, December 6, in the large lecture hall C1, NW 2 building, block C, on Leobener Straße.

The traditional public lecture held annually in December is a real crowd puller. Besides the glowing electric pickle, other experiments will amaze the audience. “We are going to illuminate eggs, make a lot of foam, ignite a fire with water, and demonstrate how better not to extinguish it. And we will show why there can be a combustion under water,” says Dr. Stefan Leupold and gives a first glimpse into the show.

Admission is Free, Get Tickets in Advance

The scientists will explain everything in a comprehensible way and supplement it with small anecdotes from the field of chemistry. After the two-hour "chemistry blast", the Young Chemists Forum (JungChemikerForum, JCF) of the Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker (German Chemical Society) invites you to a relaxed get-together with drinks and pastries. Admission to the experimental Christmas lecture is free. Due to the expected large number of visitors, tickets are now available in the post office of the Faculty of Biology/Chemistry (NW2 building, room 1196).
