This is an activity that exposes school kids to something a bit different from the conventional concept of Chemistry – i.e. a bunch of people in lab coats pouring steaming liquids into exotic pieces of glassware.
Instead, this is a well-rounded session that includes some actual time in the lab as well as some on-the-fly characterisation via X-ray crystallography and even some virtual reality. All of this revolves around the theme of crystals - what they are, why are they important, how do we make them, how do we understand them.
The session lasts for half a day and usually involves 5-20 students attending year 10-year 12. Please contact Gabriele Sosso on firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a suitable date.
