The world needs more chemical scientists, and chemistry skills can lead our young people into a vast range of fulfilling careers. We help people see the part they can play in the future of the chemical sciences, and we improve chemistry education.
We believe that everyone should have access to a high quality chemistry education which is engaging, inspiring and relevant. We are committed to promoting excellent science education across the world and are the largest non-government supporter of chemistry education in the UK.
Supporting the chemical sciences in schools
We support a broad range of activities to inspire and enthuse the next generation with chemistry. Our programmes offer school students the opportunity to engage with practising chemists and learn about the application of the chemical sciences in the real world.
We organise a number of competitions to inspire, enthuse and engage the next generation with the chemical sciences. Our competitions offer challenges for students of all ages and levels.
Our network of Education Coordinators use their local knowledge and contacts to stimulate outreach activities across the UK and Ireland. They have powerful relationships with those working across the science education sector, and so they can help your school make the most of what's on offer where you are.
