KS2 Chemistry Workshops

Unfortunately, we are not able to visit schools and deliver our full catalogue of activities at the moment. We have adapted selected workshops to be delivered virtually via Teams or Zoom, all of these are listed below.

If you haven't already, please sign up to our email Newsletter to be notified when we are able to visit schools and run events again.  

Ask Our Students

1hr | up to 300 students | Yr3-12
Invite Newcastle University students from a range of subject areas to talk to your students and answer their questions. This may be useful for A Level Biology students who aren't sure of the difference between studying Biology, Animal Science or Zoology or perhaps a chance for KS3 pupils to learn about the different types of engineering or even for a year 6 class to find out what real scientists do.
