In 2021, due to the coronavirus pandemic, we took our Festivals of Chemistry online. Our focus was regional, with six Festivals across the UK: Festival Scotland, Festival NW, Festival NE, Festival SE, Festival SW and Festival Wales working with universities and educational partners to create a range of online content.
Users can immerse themselves in the world of chemistry with:
- fun experiment demonstrations
- tours of university labs
- mini lectures
- interactive shows
The content focuses on the curriculum and supporting teaching and learning in and outside of school. Students, teachers and technicians were able to join any of the Festivals remotely and explore content from across all regions.
Festivals 2021 focused on students aged 14 – 16 years and their teachers and technicians, given the disruption to education across the UK in 2020/2021.
