What is Chemistry Club?

The Salters’ Chemistry Club used to be a handbook created for teachers to develop and grow science clubs in schools. It has now evolved into an online platform that reaches an international audience. Chemistry Club aims to demystify chemistry and showcase the breadth and depth of the subject and the wide range of careers chemistry can lead to.

Learners explore chemistry in our everyday lives and see that being a chemist isn’t all about wearing a white coat in a lab.

All learners log in using their school email. They will then need to be verified by their teacher or technician to have full access to the Chemistry Club content. This is to ensure the platform’s safeguarding protocols.

What I like most about Chemistry Club is that there are so many things that are related to chemistry that I didn't know about.
