Laboratory Tours

Year 11/12 and university student groups are invited to tour our world-class forensic and analytical laboratories. A visit to ChemCentre’s Bentley laboratories will give students an insight into a future career in chemistry.
 
A visit begins with a welcome presentation that introduces students to ChemCentre, its role in the community and the diverse roles a chemist can have throughout their career.
 
During your visit you will tour either our Forensic, Organic or Inorganic laboratories. This is an opportunity for students to meet ‘real life’ chemists, explore their work environment and learn about the impact of ChemCentre’s work on our community.
 
The visit will conclude with a selection of activities that are fun for all ages and highlight the diversity within the field of chemistry.

School Incursions

Prefer for the ChemCentre team to visit your school? We can!
For larger groups, the ChemCentre team can visit your school to give a 1 hour, fun presentation that gives students an insight into a future career in chemistry.

Students will hear about real life cases, test their observation skills and volunteers can try  the Emergency Response Personal Protective Equipment.
