Chemisty at Work has proved very succesful over  the years but the RSC have now decided to stop the dedicated funding given to it. I hope to maintain the school-based Chemistry at Work events with continued support from the new RSC Outreach fund. The three-day central venue events however, in Milton Keynes, are immediately effected by this as they are more expensive to run.

Consequently and regretably I have had to cancel this Autumn Term’s Event for 650 Year 6 pupils at the Milton Keynes City Discovery Centre and I am seeking another benefactor for the Secondary School’s Chemistry at Work event there in June 2018.

I hope to be able to contine to help students see the value of chemistry.
