Chemistry in Your Shopping Basket
Staff from Newcastle and Northumbria University will be visiting GEMS to teach students from year 8.
Staff from Newcastle and Northumbria University will be visiting the school on October 8th to teach students from year 8 about 'Chemistry in Your Shopping Basket'.
They will learn about how chemistry is involved in the contents of their shopping baskets, which chemicals are used and why. They'll find out what else can be done with the same chemicals and why they are important.
Perhaps most importantly of all, they'll learn just what a 'chemist' is, and about career opportunities in chemistry.
