Our programmes for adult lifelong learners combine a focus on our rich heritage and history with celebrating the role that chemistry plays in our everyday lives.

Lunchtime Lectures 2022

Our online lunchtime lecture series will bring chemistry, and how we interact with it, to life in ways you have never imagined. Chemistry can be found everywhere, from the skincare we use, to the jewellery we wear, to modern medicine. Chemistry is essential in helping us live in a more sustainable and socially aware society. Lectures will be held on zoom from 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm.

Our guest speakers include:

  • Laura Rudoe: Chemistry in Skincare – Thursday 28th April
  • Alice Fry: Chemistry in Craft – Thursday 19th April
  • Professor Sir David Klenerman: Chemistry in Medicine – Thursday 14th July
