The first Chemistry at Work event of 2017, hosted by St Michael’s Catholic School in High Wycombe, was once again a great success and we welcomed a new demonstrator – David Ab Irwerth, a new demonstrator, came from Environmental Health and showed the students how chemistry is important in many areas of Local Council responsibility, including contaminated land and gave local examples. David is keen to take part again. It was also good to see some of our more recently joined demonstrators honing their skills in engaging the students.

The RSC have also begun addressing the scheme’s recent funding issues and with a more flexible approach to their support which bodes well nationally for the future of Chemistry at Work.

Meanwhile, if you are interested in taking part in these uplifting events. Please contact me
