MerseySTEM Chemistry at Work Event: November 2015

On the 11th of November 2015, MerseySTEM facilitated another amazing Chemistry at Work event in conjunction with The Royal Society of Chemistry at Sci-Tech Daresbury.

DEYES S2U 4

Throughout the course of the day students attended hands-on workshops from AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals, Science and Technology Facilities Council, Science2U & Techniquest Glyndŵr. 

MOSSLANDS S2U 2

Schools attending included Rainford High School, Weaverham High School, St Ambrose Barlow RC High School, Birkdale High School, Deyes High School, Bellerive Catholic High School, Tytherington School & The Mosslands School.

Students enjoyed the fun, interactive learning experiences and left with a real sense of how Chemistry applies in the real world. They had the opportunity to experience everything from micro-measuring experiments  to creating bath bombs – no explosions thankfully!

“WOW! Micro pipettes can measure really small stuff!”

“Science is brilliant like this!”

MerseySTEM’s Managing Director Michelle Dow explained the concept, “Chemistry at Work events offer young people the opportunity to appreciate the place of chemistry in everyday life and the world of work.”

“The aim is to show a positive image of the chemical sciences and to present them as exciting, interesting and wealth-creating activities that are worth considering as the basis of a career.”
