Presentation: Everyday Chemistry

The presentation I am going to deliver will shed light on a miscellany or items and processes accompanying our daily lives, ranging from air fresheners and disinfectants to nail polish and canned food. What causes the offensive smell of garbage? What do you fill your vehicle's fuel tank with? How does air conditioning work and how does it contribute to ozone depletion? What are the processes involved in making canned food? Although the scope of the subject and the time frame prevent my presentation from being a fully comprehensive and all-encompassing account, I hope to let you look at these quotidian matters from a chemist's vantage point.

Here is a word for you, try to explain it to your team in other words so that they say it. Too easy? It is, now try and explain it without using these obvious associations.This is where it gets tricky: explain 'pilot' without saying 'fly', '(air)plane', 'airport' or 'jet', and be quick, because your time is ticking out!

This game is fun, suitable for everyone starting from the Intermediate level, and it does wonders for your speaking skills. Don't miss it!
