University finds right chemistry to reach out to schools
The University of Wolverhampton held an outreach event to inspire A-level students to consider studying the subject at degree level.
Thirty-six students from St Edmunds Catholic Academy in Wolverhampton, Great Barr Academy in Birmingham, Grove School in Market Drayton and Stourbridge College attended the 'Chemistry; Tackling Global Challenges' event held in the University’s £21 million Rosalind Franklin Science Centre at its City Campus in Wolverhampton.
Chemistry Week is an annual celebration of the chemical sciences, centred around our members sharing their passion with public audiences. In 2017 it took place from 20–26 November, and the theme was 'Global Science'. Members were able to apply for grants from our Outreach Fund to organise activities.
