Chemistry Enrichment Workshop

Please note: This program is currently not being offered in 2017.

The School of Chemistry is proud to run their Chemistry Enrichment Workshop. Students will gain the skills and knowledge designed to strengthen their understanding of Chemistry in areas relevant to the HSC. We aim to nurture your love of Science through a series of hands-on experiments and engaging lectures from some of our top academics.

  • Who: The workshop is designed for students in Year 11.
  • When: 4 consecutive days over the September/October school holidays (exact dates to be posted when applications offically open each year)

Students will complete a number of mandatory practicals from the Production of Materials and Acidic Environment Modules and then take the experiments to the next stage by undertaking university-level open ended investigations. You will gain new lab skills in Chemistry, and a broader understanding of evolving fields such as Nanotechnology and Medicinal Chemistry.
