The Chemistry Map of Scotland


This project was an original idea of Dr Baker and was developed by members of the Tayside Local Section and other Scottish Local Sections for the International Year of Chemistry in 2011. The project was continued as part of the International Year of Chemistry Challenge by the Tayside Local Section in 2012.

The web page is an outreach activity aimed at involving children in chemistry by encouraging them to write a short account of a famous chemist, chemical discovery or chemistry-related industry, past or present, in their location. This puts Chemistry into geographical, historical, social and personal context and demonstrates its relevance to the locality and life of the student. The contributions from the student are posted on the site and are linked to the precise relevant geographical location on the Map. All entries can be viewed on the Map and opened by the user.

The website was launched at the Science and the Parliament event in Edinburgh in November 2011.
