Showcasing the Periodic Table
18 - 24 November 2019
Chemistry Week is an annual celebration of the chemical sciences, and is centred around our members sharing their passion with public and school audiences. It is an opportunity to organise events and activities that connect chemistry with local people and communities to:
- promote a positive image of chemistry and sciences
- demonstrate to people within the local community how chemistry is relevant and present in everyday life.
This year we want to invite our members to design and deliver events to celebrate the International Year of the Periodic Table (IYPT) with their local community. We are looking to support creative, diverse and innovative engagement opportunities for local audiences providing chemistry connections with audiences that may not have access to science outreach activities.
If you are looking for ideas, our Local Sections are a great place to start. Dedicated members of Local Section committees organise and run a vast programme of activities throughout the year. For inspiration take a look at the stories from previous events and activities on our Community news pages.
If you are interested in participating get in touch to find out if what is going on in your area or apply for a Chemistry Week grant to organise an event yourself. Grants up to £750 are available to support members to organise activities taking place during Chemistry Week and celebrate the theme 'Showcasing the Periodic Table'.
This year we are offering grants throughout the whole of 2019 to celebrate the International Year of the Periodic Table. Applications for Chemistry Week are welcome through the same route, please see bwlow for more information:
- IYPT grants for members (up to £500, including ChemSocs and Learn Chemistry Partnership Schools) and member networks (up to £1,000)
- Outreach Fund (for grants up to £2,000, see above)
