Schools Outreach Activities

Department of Chemistry Outreach Activities

The Department of Chemistry and the wider University are highly committed to working with school and colleges to support widening participation and access to higher education.  We are keen to engage with pupils of all ages and offer many outreach activities throughout the school year targeted at different year groups. These activities aim to provide a stimulating mix of chemistry-based laboratory activities with a hands-on element, along with quizzes, lectures and demonstration experiments, all designed to engage pupils of all abilities. These activities are delivered through a mix of University-based events and activities delivered within the schools.

Please visit the relevant 'Primary', 'Secondary' or 'Post 16' Outreach pages for further details with a brief summary of each event offered. We also support schools with Schools Science weeks/days, either by preparing ad-hoc sessions or by providing the necessary materials/equipment to assist widening participation schools deliver their own activities. Do not hesitate to contact us if you are preparing a Science event at your school!
