Since the Covid-19 crisis, the ChemBAM team has worked with volunteers from the University of Birmingham to provide a suite of home-learning resources to encourage learning and enjoyment of chemistry. The aim of the website is to promote enjoyment of and engagement with chemistry, whatever direction pupils take in their future.
The ChemBAM team is passionate about education equality and runs several projects to help teachers in disadvantaged schools provide an inspiring chemistry education experience for their pupils. These have been kindly funded by industry, individuals and also the Royal Society of Chemistry Outreach fund. For example, the ChemBOX project provides boxes of equipment to underfunded schools to enable them to run ChemBAM experiments with their classes and volunteers from the ChemBAM team offer teacher training and classroom sessions with researchers. ChemBAM is also committed to accessibility and the team has recently started developing activities and experiments that are accessible for students with a visual impairment.
