Once again the Chemistry at Work Day hosted by Aylesbury Grammar School proved very popular.

Their Year 8 students saw a typical wide range of demonstrations including: how the police use Chemistry, how bees use Chemistry and how important gel is in cosmetics (plus making it). Also how copper is refined and used, how poisons work on people and the solving of historic cases with Chemistry and  how we ensure the water in the swimming pools is safe, as well as the dangers of asbestos, including why we still use it, and the links between Chemistry & Psychology when we are under stress, and controlling this, plus the opportunity to learn about the many different types of earthworms and handling them.
