Chemistry taster session
This taster session gives A Level chemists a taste of what it’s like to study Chemistry at university.
Analysing and modelling aspirin
A free virtual taster session for students studying A Level Chemistry with an interest in studying Chemistry at university.
Please note this is a repeat session of the events ran between April 2020 - April 2021. Therefore, students that have already participated may not want to do so again. We are happy to allow students to participate again, but would prefer to prioritise new attendees.

This session is now full.
Expression of interest form
Age group: Year 12, A Level, BTEC
Max bookings: 30
In this interactive session, we will explore how chemists analyse their samples, using aspirin as an example. We will discuss infrared (IR) spectroscopy, mass spectrometry and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, and you'll get the chance to use molecular modelling software to visualise aspirin in 3D as well!
