Chemistry at Work

The Wolfson Foundation
Chemistry at Work events offer school students the opportunity to appreciate the place of chemistry in everyday life and the world of work, with particular emphasis on what is happening in their local area. 

They aim to show a positive image of the chemical sciences and to present them as exciting, interesting and wealth-creating activities that are worth considering as the basis of a career.

Chemistry at Work is supported by an education grant as part of the Reach and Teach Programme funded by the Wolfson Foundation.
