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 - October 2020. You are welcome to attend again, however, please be aware the content of the session will be the same.
When: Monday 7 December 2020, 4:15pm - 6:00pm
Places available: 25
Year 13, A Level, BTEC
The following taster session is aimed at any Y13 pupils who have not yet submitted their UCAS form, and are therefore not holding any offers with the University of Sheffield. Any pupils who are offer holders and book onto a taster session will instead be invited to join us for our Virtual Applicant days from December - April.
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!
