Our wide range of activities are designed to inspire curiosity in STEM subjects.

Postgraduate ambassadors

A science demonstration with students in a local schoolOur postgraduate ambassadors can deliver STEM career talks to schools in the Greater London area*. This is a great way to engage students in discussions about STEM, and helps to show what careers in STEM areas look like. If you would like a postgraduate ambassador to visit your school please complete our online form. If you would like more information about our ambassadors, or information on how a visit could be tailored to your group, please email us.

Spectroscopy in a Suitcase

Students undertaking a Spectroscopy in a Suitcase lab class This activity, funded by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), gives AS and A-level students access to modern, portable spectrometers, which they can use to analyse mystery substances. This workshop is a fun and interactive way to build on your existing teaching in spectroscopy with equipment which is used by chemists, the police and F1 racing teams!
