Exploring superconductors

2015 Schools Programme

We have an exciting schedule of outreach events this year. This list will be updated as we announce new events so please check back regularly.

  • Spectroscopy Day 16th April 2015

This popular course covers many of the aspects of infrared and NMR spectroscopy and Mass spectrometry. Workshops and problem solving classes are included as well as tours of the spectroscopy facilities and introductions to the instruments, sample preparation and analysis. The day ends with an entertaining demonstration lecture. 

  • Adventures in Molecular Science 30th June 2015

This one day course, for year 12 students studying A level chemistry is designed as a 'taster' day for the University Chemistry experience, including lectures / workshops and laboratory work. We will also be discussing the merits of studying chemistry at University, future careers for chemists and a chance to ask current undergraduates about their experiences.
