Chemistry at Work events aim to inspire students to appreciate the relevance and societal importance of chemistry, and consider a future career in the chemical sciences.
Our events enable students and teachers to interact with practicing chemical scientists and organisations in their local area.
Chemistry at Work events:
- can be delivered to primary school students engaging with science for the first time or secondary school students
- enable schools to meet local organisations specialising in the chemical sciences who deliver exciting presentations and hands on demonstrations about their industry
- take place over a period of between one and three days
- can be hosted at a range of venues, including schools, universities and science centres.
To see what Chemistry at Work looks like here is a primary school event.
