Once again, this event was a great success and the schools are all hoping to be able to bring their Year 6 pupils again next year. We had a total of 36 demonstrations running over the three days and over 600 pupils took part. As usual, their enthusiasm and good questions impressed the demonstrators.
The dates for this Year 6 event Next Year are:
Tuesday 20th, Wednesday 21st and Thursday 22nd October 2015.
The first Chemistry at Work event of this Autumn Term took place on Wednesday 1st October at Dr Challoner’s Grammar School. All demonstrations the demonstrations were well received and the school is booking the event once again for next year.
Junior and Middle Schools are booking in their groups at the annual REAL SCIENCE event for Year Six pupils running at the Milton Keynes City Discovery Centre in Bradwell Abbey from Tuesday 21st to Thursday 23rd October and most of the 36 spaces have now been taken.
Pupils arrive at 09.45 in group of 15 to 20, accompanied by their teachers. Each group takes part in eight of the many demonstrations, given by experts and experienced demonstrators, and the day finishes at 15.00.
The event is open to all schools able to bring their students and there is a modest entry charge heavily subsidised by the Royal Society of Chemistry. A programme from last year shows the typical types of demonstrations on offer.
For the last two years the event has been considerably oversubscribed so schools interested in bringing students should contact us as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
The annual event to be hosted by DCGS in Amersham on Wednesday 1st October this year has nearly all its demonstrators booked now. Thank you to all of you who have agreed to attend. They are looking forward to a great day.
