The University's Department of Chemistry will be hosting an outreach event on Thursday 1 June, designed to encourage academic achievement in children of Bangladeshi heritage.

Children aged between 11 and 15 years old from the Darus Salam Mosque will be invited to attend a day of activities, led by Dr Kal Karim and Dr Barbara Villa Macros from the University of Leicester and Moj Bashir, Chairman of Darus Salam Mosque.

The event will consist of a stimulating mix of chemistry-based laboratory activities with a hands-on element, along with quizzes, lectures and demonstration experiments, all designed to engage with pupils of all abilities in the hope of inspiring them to go into higher education.

The Department of Chemistry, and the wider University, is already highly committed to working with school and colleges to support widening participation and access to higher education.

The event will take place at the University of Leicester on Thursday 1 June between 2 and 4 pm.
