ChemCentre provides essential services in environmental chemistry, forensic science, and emergency response to help keep WA safe. But did you know we also provide chemistry-based education?
Based on our mandate within the Chemistry Centre (WA) Act 2007 - to promote, and assist in the provision of, chemistry based education and training (s9) - ChemCentre runs an education and outreach program, including a biennual Open Day.
The program promotes engagement with the secondary and tertiary education sectors, as well as collaboration with other Western Australian science engagement providers. Each year, our scientists and science communicators take part in secondary and tertiary student events, community presentations, science showcases and chemistry career events.
