The Centre's outreach activities are only made possible by the enthusiasm and commitment of our students. All our PhD researchers have been through the STEM Ambassador programme, which aims to inspire young people and open doors to the world of opportunities that comes from pursuing STEM subjects.
Bringing science alive
Our researchers are passionate about science and this is never more apparent than when they interact with visiting school children. The Centre annually hosts 2 - 4 science visits, when primary and secondary students alike are given the opportunity to experience first-hand what it is like to do research in a lab.
Over 300 pupils have attended our outreach events since 2010 and participated in many workshops where they learn skills such as synthesis extraction, measurement, fair testing and cooperation.
