Schools and outreach
Learning about chemistry starts well before university. We run activities to support learning in schools and colleges for students in years 12-13, ranging from lab classes and analytical workshops to careers advice.
Watch: Edible experiments
Join Dr Joanna Buckley as she explores the chemistry behind food: from finding out why mustard burns your nasal passages but chillies don't, and why you might taste boiled potatoes when you eat cheddar cheese, to how beetles can make a surprising contribution to our food.
Watch: Buckyball Science Series
In our Buckyball Science Series videos you will learn how small a Buckyball is, and where it sits on the 'Scientific Scale'. You can also learn how to make your very own model Buckyball, and find out about marvellous molecules and chemical reactions.
