Filming Opportunities

Do you work in a field related to chemistry or a related science? We’d love to film your place of work and learn more about your role so that we can showcase the different career paths to which chemistry can lead. These films are for secondary school students, are around 2-3 minutes long, and involve a half day of filming and there is no cost to you or your employer.

Come to a Festival of Chemistry Discovery Day

Our Festival programme includes one-day in-person events, called Discovery Days, at universities across the UK.

Discovery Days are engaging and educational. They comprise a careers panel, a hands-on chemistry practical in a university laboratory, and a key note address from an inspiring speaker. We aim to encourage students to get excited about chemistry, and inspire and motivate them to continue with their study of chemistry as part of their academic journey.
