Chemistry at Work

Careers conference

We run these events with the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC). Scientists talk to students about how their roles use Chemistry. We find that at 12 – 14 years students may lose interest in science, unless they can see its direct application in the real world.

We offer lots of time for students to ask questions, as well as a chance to explore the galleries of the National Space Centre.

Age group: Key stage 3; 12 – 14 years

Cost: £6.95 + VAT per student (1 free teacher per 10 students) *

Includes:
Half day of workshops and talks with people using Chemistry in their roles
Planetarium show
Half day to explore the National Space Centre

* this covers access to the National Space Centre. Everything else is made possible thanks to funding from the Royal Society of Chemistry.
