Schools outreach activities

The Department of Chemistry and the wider University are highly committed to working with schools and colleges to support widening participation and access to higher education. Our outreach programme is delivered through a mix of University-based events and activities at your school.

We engage with pupils of all ages and offer many outreach activities throughout the school year targeted at different year groups. These activities 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.

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 in delivering their own activities. Do not hesitate to contact us if you are preparing a science event at your school.
