Young Chemistry Communicators

Young Chemistry Communicators is a project overseen by Techniquest Glyndwr and funded by the Royal Society of Chemistry. The intention is to enhance the communication skills of Sixth Form chemists and deliver Chemistry-related activities to younger children, in order to inspire them to study the subject.

In 2019/20, shows were presented to children from Northenden Community School and Mauldeth Road Primary School. One of the shows was performed during the visit of the Mayor of Greater Manchester, who came to see some examples of the many community activities in which the School is involved.

In 2020/21, Year 12 A Level chemists had to learn to present the ‘flash bang’ chemistry shows in a mixture of recordings and live online presentations. During lockdown in the first part of the Spring Term, the girls planned three superb Chemistry shows all featuring kitchen-based experiments, using reagents that could be safely handled by younger children, either at home or in the school setting. Two of the shows were delivered virtually to pupils of Years 5 and 6 from St Teresa’s Primary School, and the third show was delivered to our very own Year 8s. The complete shows have also been made available as full recordings to share with other local schools.
