Abstract

The primary aim of this project was to organise and deliver an outreach activity to students who had already participated in an outreach activity on a previous occasion. Repeat and/or early interventions have been identified as a way to improve engagement of students who may be interested in pursuing a career in chemistry and may consequently have a positive effect on students’ decisions to continue studying science. The event was to be run as a collaboration between a number of university chemistry departments across the London region. Students’ opinions of the events and their attitudes towards continuing their studies in chemistry would be evaluated fully following the second event and compared to evaluations received following the first event.
