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.”« Back To News
