"Run by students and designed to inspire the next generation of scientists"

We provide a range of activities and workshops to help students discover their future potential in STEM subjects. Whilst we do focus on chemistry, we can offer all science subjects. The project allows university students to volunteer, working with local schools both on campus and at schools themselves.

 

From primary right through to sixth-form, we are able to cater our talents to suit your requirements. We do have several convenient programmes ready to demonstrate; from dry ice to fruit batteries or even a talk on life as a chemist, we think hands-on activities are the best way to understand science and further your knowledge. As well as student workshops, we do provide demonstrations, mainly to younger students for safety reasons, they are usually captivated. With a vast range of expertise on university life, we can also provide careers talks to older students, in preparation for applications and finding employment. If this isn’t for you we can also create a unique project to compliment the curriculum. Usually we aim to supplement the learning of students, helping them to learn through active participation

Demonstrations

Dry ice entertains everyone. Mainly aimed at primary schools, we can educate students on the properties of materials and how carbon dioxide is different. Through a variety of practical methods, we can generate wonder from creating a smoking volcanoes and bubbles.

After School Club

This year we have been working with a local school to deliver material to students at their current stage in learning, in this case, rocks and soils. It needn’t be chemistry related! We are more than happy to demonstrate and explain any science. It is sometimes possible to get hold of more specialist materials that your school may not have, so everyone can see science in action, not just learn about it. If your school would like frequents visit on any science topic we’d be happy to help!

Macro Science Workshop

New for this year, we have introduced a macro science workshop for secondary schools, investigating polymers, electricity, pH and more. This has been very successful so far and we hope to add an additional micro science workshop to our available lessons. We are trying to expand our secondary school experiment selection this year so we hope to have 3 or 4 activities we can offer before next year.

And remember, this is all provided free of charge! Whatever age, we would be more than happy to demonstrate any of our experiments, or any of your own. We are here to inspire students and we don’t mind travelling to you and providing all materials so we can achieve our goal. 

 

We also get involved with the Big Bang Fair throughout the year, so be sure to check us out!
