Playful Chemistry

Friday 26 February, 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

Suitability: Primary Schools

Free. Certain costs incurred by schools will be covered by the PSST and the Stranmillis widening participation unit. Schools interested in taking part should contact for further details.

Hosted by the Primary Science Teaching Trust (PSTT) team at Stranmillis University College, this event aims to highlight how chemistry can be made more relevant and engaging for pupils. It offers a playful formula for chemistry, setting chemical concepts in exciting, every day and imaginary contexts. The programme will involve an interactive ‘fizz-bang’ demonstration lecture by Tim Harrison from the Royal Society of Chemistry, in which he performs playful experiments that are sure to raise—not singe—eyebrows!
Pupils will then get the chance to try out some exciting experiments during a workshop facilitated by Stranmillis University College student teachers and science education staff.
