Sixth Form chemists learn about the research of Stephen Fielden

Sixth Form Chemists were delighted to meet Stephen Fielden, son of our very own Mrs Fielden and former BGS pupil, who came in on Friday to talk to them. 

Stephen is currently in the process of completing his PhD in Chemistry at The University of Manchester and came in to discuss his research. 

The students had received a copy of one of his published papers in advance and were able to hear Stephen explain his work on molecular motors as well as ask informed questions. 

We particularly enjoyed the song which ran through some of the key concepts! 

The 30 sixth formers who attended gained a good insight into the life and work of a research scientist and perhaps in a few year's time one of them will be delivering something similar in school!
