Events: Chemistry

The  event aims to give young scientists a comprehensive introduction to this multidisciplinary science subject, whilst offering the chance to experience life as an undergraduate student at the University of Leeds. The food industry is one of the largest employers in the world, and offers excellent career opportunities to food science graduates. Scientists are constantly…
Researchers in Chemistry will explain some of the analytical techniques they use and why, before giving you the chance to try a few for yourself. This will be an opportunity to speak to chemistry students informally as well as experience undergraduate level lab work; identifying painkillers using infra-red spectroscopy, melting point analysis and thin layer…

Are you currently in year 11 or 12 with an interest in studying chemistry at the next level? Join us for a taster day where you will experience life as an undergraduate chemist by carrying out practical experiments in our teaching labs, exploring the campus and speaking to current staff and students in the School…
‘Seeing the invisible’ Prof Andy Beeby (Durham University) Suitable for Year 10 – Year 12 pupils. We take vision for granted, but beyond the limits of the visible spectrum there lies a wealth of spectral information waiting to be discovered.  Some creatures already know about this – for example cats, dogs and many insects can…
The subject of Medicine interests many students, however they won’t all become doctors. Teams of scientists, engineers and mathematicians work alongside medical doctors, helping them to understand the spread of disease, discover better treatments and cures, and develop technology to aid more accurate diagnosis and treatment. This event will provide more information about how STEM…
