Community Engagement

Community Engagement

Our interactions with our community are an important part of who we are and what we do in the Chemistry Department.  Most of the postgraduate students and several staff members are engaged with the community through learner and teacher programmes, lectures and public engagement, and educational demonstrations about some aspects of our work.  Mrs Joyce Sewry is our most ardent Community Engagement enthusiast and can be contacted for more information.
