Chemistry at Work
Year 8 Science and Year 9 Chemistry students recently attended a Chemistry at Work workshop at the Milton Keynes City Discovery Centre. They saw eight different demonstrations, including experiments with oxygen and how snails, slugs and worms use chemistry to live. The students also learnt about how chemistry is used in the cosmetics industry and much more. The trip showed them how Chemistry is used in the ‘real world’ and that it isn’t just a subject you learn about in school. The students thoroughly enjoyed the trip and hope to go back to the Discovery Centre again next year.
