Public engagement:

Other: Please specify in text box below, Primary and secondary pupils, Sustained outreach intervention through an UNSDG challenge., Organiser, Sustained outreach interventions, Schools and university., 'Sustainable School Chemists - Fostering Chemical Curiosity through a United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Challenge!', This outreach intervention programme will work with three primary schools (Y5/6) and three secondary schools (Y7/8). The project will see the development of an impactful chemistry outreach challenge situated in the Liverpool City Region (LCR). This novel project will engage with school students to raise aspirations, as well as provide under-represented audiences with inspiring chemistry engagement opportunities. Participating schools will be supplied with a sample of impure water produced by the Absolute Chemistry Research Group (ACRG) to safely represent water from the local River Mersey. Activities will allow learners to develop their knowledge, skills, and problem-solving approach to purify the sample through practical chemistry techniques. These samples will be ‘judged’ for purity by the ACRG, to celebrate the winner of the challenge: all learners will receive personalised rewards/certificates to commemorate their success. They will attend a university ‘Gala Day’ to share their approach to purifying the sample, learn from their peers, supporting career aspirations in science/chemistry.. 2024

Other: Please specify in text box below, Neurodiverse learners, STEAM - an activity that involved DNA extraction was supported through a creative writing activity, model building and a drama performance., Organiser, Interventions at school at at university, School and university, Unsung Heroes of Chemistry - STEAM project, As part of chemistry week, two interventions were provided to support neurodiverse pupils from a specialist provision school.. 2023
