Chemistry

Both physical and organic chemistry are vital in space research and make up the basis for the National Space Academy's chemistry Masterclasses.  As well as using examples of space chemistry to explore theory each masterclass features experiments which can be the basis of full projects: looking at the factors affecting reaction rates, for example.  The Academy Lead Educators in chemistry are adept at bringing the subject to life.

Chemistry is studied in some form up to at least age 16 in UK schools and an Academy Masterclass in chemistry is one exciting way to engage students with the curriculum. Chemistry A Levels or Highers are important for students intending to go on to study medicine, as well as both physical and biological sciences and engineering.
