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.

John Colet School’s first Chemistry at Work event yesterday (4th July) was a great success and the school wants to host the event again next year. The Head Teacher sat in on all the demonstrations and thanked the demonstrators personally at the end for bringing the WoW factor to Chemistry.

Michael Sheppard who gave his first demonstration yesterday on “Soil, Water and Citizen Science” is keen to continue and Ian Newington who spent the day sitting in on the demonstrations is now thinking through an idea for an exciting demonstration he too could give at future events. So both our demonstrator numbers and the demonstration quality are incensing!

My thanks again to all the demonstrators who made it such a great day yesterday.

Once again this annual Chemistry at Work event at the Milton Keynes City Discovery Centre was well subscribed and one school has already booked places to come for all three days next year –  Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 16th to 18th June 2015.

In response to suggestions from a couple of schools we now have three brief questions about each demonstration, printed in the programme, and are endeavouring to increase the number of  demonstrations with whiz-bangs.

This September, I shall be send out the application form to Milton Keynes and surrounding schools wanting to bring studnets to our next year;s event in June 2015.

With our grateful thanks, as ever, to the many demonstrators and schools that took part and to the support of the Royal Society of Chemistry.
