Bristol ChemLabS welcomes children of University staff
16 July 2009
Bristol ChemLabS, champions of outreach, reach inwards this summer with a chemistry day for children of University staff.
The event is almost fully booked, and already requests have come for this activity to be repeated and extended to other age groups next year.
ChemLabS hosted an inreach chemistry afternoon for non-chemist members of the Department earlier in the term. Secretaries and accounts personnel donned lab coats and safety glasses to experience work in the undergraduate teaching laboratories.
The Open Laboratories Programme is just one of the many outreach activities run by Bristol ChemLabS. In the two years since the refurbishment of the laboratories, some 4,000 school students have gained experience there, many for several days at a time.
