Spectroscopy in a Suitcase
For the second year running, the Chemistry Department has welcomed visitors from the Royal Society of Chemistry Spectroscopy in a Suitcase scheme. This is an outreach activity, which gives Sixth Form Chemistry students the opportunity to learn about spectroscopy through hands-on experience.
As well as covering the principles of spectroscopic techniques, the activities use real-life contexts to demonstrate the applications of the techniques.
The workshop, delivered by Manchester University students, also provided our girls with an opportunity to learn about life at university, the study of Chemistry and Chemistry career opportunities.
