Our Festivals of Chemistry date from the early 1990s. They have a long history of engaging learners with hands-on practical chemistry delivered at universities across the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland.
Festivals 2022 introduce a three-stage, blended approach that includes both online elements and the reintroduction of in-person events hosted at universities in the United Kingdom.
Stage 1 – Explore Chemistry Careers
Videos and Careers lesson plans with corresponding resources delving in to chemistry as a subject, its application in the real world and the career pathways it offers. The content for this will be released in April 2022 at festivalsofchemistry.org for delivery in classrooms throughout April and May.
Stage 2 – Discovery Days
(Please note that places at our Discovery Days are now full with a waiting list for school places)
10 x Regional Discovery Days taking place on-site at universities. The days consist of an inspiring speaker, a hands on practical chemistry experiment and a careers panel. On the day there will also be CPD provision for teachers attending. Applications for schools are now closed for 2022.
