Skills for Schools

The University of Southampton recognises the importance of engaging young people in chemistry and the physical sciences. Chemistry's schools outreach programme allows us to develop strong links with schools and colleges to support this aim. Many members of staff give up their own time to take part in our activities, and they share in the rewards of seeing young people becoming enthused about chemistry.
