Since the founding of C60, it has been our aim to encourage the study of chemistry in further and higher education, and to get younger students more involved with the subject - particularly through the use of hands-on demonstrations and workshops.
Outreach sessions are run both at the university, and at schools & sixth forms in the local area. C60 work alongside the department to host our workshops, with strong links between the department and Hailsham Community College, as well as the Aim Higher! initiative - encouraging students to be the first in their family to come to university.
Our experiment list has included:
Synthesis of Ferrofluids
Esters and Aromatics Determination
Synthesis of Gold Nanoparticles (using tea!)
