Chemistry for All

Chemistry live events and activities

Bookable activities

We're really getting back into the swing of things following that lockdown business. Here are our current bookable activities and events but please check back as we will be thinking of more engaging and exciting ways to make Chemistry for All.

'From Solar Power to Horse Power', a full lesson at a time to suit - let's find a slot in your school day

a display of a solar panel, sunglasses, torch, lightbulb, satsuma and a solar powered toy car

Did Yoda first propose the law of energy conservation, or is he just a cool green guy who’s surprisingly handy with a light sabre? KS3 pupil will learn the answer to this and so much more! We will treat them to amazing facts, brain-teasing quiz questions and, best of all, light-operated remote control car races. All whilst learning all about the chemistry of solar power.

'Analytical Monopoly', an interactive workshop on A-level spectroscopy

calculator and written calculations on a piece of paper

Putting analytical chemistry into context, students work as competing businesses tasked with identifying unknown chemicals. This session supports the A-level spectroscopy syllabus and introduces new analytical techniques and chemical structures. Students will aim to build their business empire as they establish their business strategy, decide which analytical techniques to purchase, and hopefully make a profit as a result! We can bring this engaging workshop to your classroom or host classes in our teaching labs. Talk to us about booking this activity for your school Link opens in a new window

"Thank you very much for today, the students have had an amazing day and they are buzzing. It was pitched perfectly for them and I think the challenge was great. I don’t have any suggestions for improvements and I hope we can do it again next year!” (Feedback from A Level Science Teacher, Barrs Hill)
