The Clock Tower & Humberstone Gate, Leicester

This is a drop-in event, running between 11:00-16:30 – there is no need to book. 

Lithium, neodymium, silver… these metals are essential to reduce greenhouse gases emissions. But extraction is difficult and has major environmental impacts of its own. 

Fortunately, University of Leicester researchers have developed a tool that allows cheap, safe and clean extraction of these compounds. This process allows efficient metal recycling, producing useful products from waste. 

Find out more about these exciting advancements, while you paint with metal salts, and try your hand at many more metal hands-on activities! 

This drop-in activity is part of our Saturday City Centre takeover
