Bristol ChemlabS Outreach Program

Pupils from Year 5 & 6  from Headley Park Primary School, Henleaze Junior School, Holymead Primary School, St Peter & St Paul Primary School, Waycroft Academy, West Town Lane Academy, Wicklea Academy & Woodlands Academy attended a Bristol ChemlabS outreach program at Redmaids' High along with pupils from the junior school.

The pupils all had a demonstration assembly from Alison Rivett on the theme of 'Solids, Liquids & Gases'.

The visiting pupils and Redmaids High Junior girls then spent the rest of the day undertaking experiments in the Senior School laboratories with postgraduate chemists Joanna Sparks, Jonny Furze, Maddy Nichols, Angela Suriyakumaran.

 

 

 

 

Aims

The aim of the project was to inspire students from all across Bristol in science with the help of Bristol ChemlabS. It was also an opportunity for students to learn more about chemistry in a masterclass delivered by university level chemists.

 

 

Background

The project is now in its ninth year running with Bristol ChemlabS.

 

 

Resources

Redmaids' High provided the hall for the assembly and science demonstrations as well as the Senior School Laboratories for the chemistry masterclasses.

 

 

Pupil Involvement
